Multi-Cat Household Fighting (is not uncommon) — 2 Comments

  1. My 6 cats 4 of whom are deaf ferals, 1 is almost 18 years and 1 was badly abused as a kitten, then adopted by one person, who found he was a handful and gave him to a friend whose only other cat beat the holy hell out of him. It has taken time and patience, but they get along as long as I am home. I don’t accept fights-only play wrestling. I have 7 water stations, 6 litters (I make my own and they are large), and separate rooms for meals. When I’m not home, those that get along have the run of most of the house, The others are in their own rooms. Each room has water and litter boxes, several beds and a cat tree. I can’t tell how many different toys are in each room. I tell everyone that my home is NOT people friendly-it’s cat friendly and if the have any objections, please stay away. My children think I’m a bit nuts (that’s ok), but I say at least my cats are honest in their opinions of things.

  2. In my humble opinion humans spend too much time humanizing why cats fight instead of getting to the real issues. Most mulitcat households understand the litter box ratio but fail to accommodate the need for more perches, high places, window settings, feeding stations, bigger beds, growing more arms to pet them getting a bigger lap, duplicates of the same toy because it’s a favorite.
