The Yowling


The felines, they are still hissing, spitting and yowling at one another.

It’s been five months. I’ve tried everything I, the Internet and my vet can think of. Except for one thing.

Barring blood, it’s time let them fight it out.

Viola is ready. Come play with me…for ever, and ever, and ever.

  1. Have you tried the plug in cat pheromones? (works kind of like a big glade plug-in) We had to get a couple of those the first few months when we got a second cat years ago and it seemed to help a lot (though were expensive for what they are)

    Out rabbits were like that for a year. Separate cages, couldn’t be let out at the same time, peed in front of each other’s cage every time. After trying to bond them all peaceable like I finally gave up and let them duke it out. They established dominance after one fight, and now they’re best friends. Sometimes it’s the only way.

    Since this all started with one being at the vet and the other at home, maybe take them both out for a few days, bring them both in, BUT when you bring them in, keep them in cages right next to each other for a time. When they’ve stopped hissing, let the non-aggressor out first, then the aggressive one. If they go at it, so be it. It’ll probably be over rather quickly.

    Not sure if it’ll work, but since you’re at the point of letting them duke it out, adding these steps won’t hurt and might help.
