From the USA
My cats hate each other and I don’t know what to do about it. I had a female cat for a long time and about a year ago a adopted another from a rescue center to keep her company as I am away quite a lot.
I expected a bit of uncertainty at the beginning but they have never settled down properly. My first cat still seems to resent the new cat’s presence and when she walks past him she hisses at him. Sometimes she gives him a swipe. It is more an air swipe actually.
I would like them to be more friendly. I had hoped that they would even cuddle up. It seems to me that some cats never get on like some people never get on. Is that right?
If it is a case of two personalities that are never going to get on have I got to give my rescue cat back? I don’t want to do that. It seems wrong to me. But as the idea was to give my first cat company, this has not worked out. It is just upsetting her.
What do people do when this happens?
