  2. We have been trying to intgergrate a new cat to our home, we have try to slowing put them together. At first we keep them apart, after a couple of weeks. We let the new cat out, the home cat was already out. As soon as the new cat saw the home cat she went after her and attack her. They are both adult females and fixed. We have try it a couple more times, but every time let the new cat out she goes looking for the home cat and attacks her. We have been trying to get them to get along but it seems like all the new cat wants to do is attack the home cat. The home cat doesn’t even want to come out of our bedroom now. If anyone can help us to try to get them to get along, I would so thankful. We love both of cats and we want them to get along, but if we can’t get the new cat to stop attacking the home cat. We will have to take her back to the shelter.

    • I think you need to separate the cats and try again. Once they have both relaxed in their separate spaces, start feeding them on opposite sides of the closed door. It may take a while for both cats to get comfortable enough to eat while they can smell, perhaps hear, the other through the closed door. Once this happens, you can try short periods of time in the same space and immediately put the aggressor in a small closed room for a time out if this occurs.

      If they cannot become relaxed enough to eat in this situation, I would suggest talking to your vet or an animal behavior specialist. Good luck.

  5. Does a rabis shot, if given make a cat less agressive? Does herpes in a cat make a cat aggresive? I received a kitten for Xmas about 4 yrs.ago. Wks later I took him to a vet and had him tested and found out he has herpes. He’s being treated when needed…I had to separate fr. my cat temporarily .When he came back to me,he now hates my other two angels,and have bit both of them and had to take them to the vet for antbiotics. He wasn’t like this in the beginning,but started to hate other cats down the line.I keep him totally separate fr. my other cats. I can’t keep doing this.Is ther a cure for his behavior? He is a loving cat without other cats around. I even consider him dangerous the way he attacks,because of the severity of the bite. What do I do? Should he be put down? separate the cats for good ? Put him in a new home? Please help. Would a rabis shot help his behavor? Please help .Thank yu

    • What sort of treatment is being administered to your kitten for herpes virus? That seems to be important to me. Herpes on its own may make a cat upset and feel bad so he may be grumpy. But there may be something else going on. I have never heard of a rabies jab making a cat less aggressive. Did you leave your kitten at the vet for a while for tests etc. for herpes treatment? Are you sure he was treated OK? Mistreatment would make a cat defensively aggressive.

  6. I WANT TO KNOW WHY MY PERSIAN CAT IS SO AGGRESSIVE THE LAST MONTHS TOWARDS MY MAINE COON AND THE PERSIAN IS 11 YEARS AND MAINE COON 8 YEARS.
    THE PERSIAN CAT WAS NEVER A FIGHTER BUT SUDDENLY THE MAINE COON CAN NOT WALK AGAINST HIM OR HE WIL FIGHT AND MAKE SOUNDS FOR HIM.
    IS THERE MAYBE A REASON .

    • Who was there first? Did you introduce the Maine Coon to the household after your Persian was there? Does you Persian show other signs of stress such as litter box problems?
