We’ve heard of alpha male cats. Does anyone have an alpha female cat? — 6 Comments

  1. I have had several female “alpha” cats. Bambi was a long-haired Manx. She was the most gentle of cats and never did I ever see her get into a fight or smack anyone. She ruled with gentleness over not only the Clowder, but the Pack of dogs, the ferret and the rats. Kyara was a tortie rescued from a ranch in Texas. She was a feisty one, but she didn’t have to fight. Just a hiss or a nasty growl and even the big boys backed up. My current Queen is Kutawnnie, She was an unwanted kitten I took in. She is going on 18 now and is one of the smallest cats I’ve had. She took over the Clower when Ziggy Fraud passed on. She takes no guff from anyone and will hiss and snarl at the drop of a hat. It looks like Joy will be the next queen and Kutawnnie doesn’t like her. Therefore in the interest of peace, Kutawnnie remains in the computer room during the day and Joy roams the rest of the house. At night, Joy remains in the “Garfield room” and Kutawnnie has the run of the house.

  2. Out of my 13 moggies ‘Storm’ is the alpha female and when the vile nasal cancer finally takes her from me then ‘Molly’ will take Storm’s place.
    The pic is my ‘Storm’ showing her cancer tumor on her face :O(

  3. My white Turkish van/Van kedisi Fatima is certainly an Apha female. So much so she will not tolerate any other cat coming near her territory which by necessity is my bathroom (with the door kept closed). If any other cat, male or female, big or small sneaks inside a ding dong battle immediately ensues. Her 2 daughters Melek and Yasemin, also pure white and big, are also Alpha females but much more tolerant.
