Are female cats more territorial than males? — 4 Comments

  1. It would make interesting conversation because females tend to be more territorial with other females unfixed or not in smaller spaces, unfixed males are the most territorial toward all other cats and males can be more territorial in large open roaming environments than females in some circumstances and males are usually more territorial toward owners/humans than females. But of course that is speculation and putting a large amount of cats into a small box. I think a study with more figures would be neat.

  2. I have had more issues with females getting along with other females far more than males with males or females with males. That has just been my experience in the rescue enviornment. Usually I just throw all our fixed males together with no issues but I have to watch the females very closely. This may just be coincidence based on individual personalities and backgrounds but is an interesting conversation.
