We have 2 cats left of 6 that we did a TNR on a little over 8 years ago. After our house cats passed the Mother Cat which we estimate to be about 9 to 10 years old basically took their place as a 50% house cat and you would never know she was ever a feral cat she got so gentle. Her kitten which is also a fixed female and now about 8 years old decided in the last few months that she too is willing to be a house cat and is staying in the house 50% of the time. Here comes the problem .... the older cat don't seem to want to be in the house when her kitten is in here also. The older cat will come in for pets, cat treats, get brushed, litter box etc. and she wants out in 15 minutes. This older Mother Cat has always wanted to be the alpha cat,. But I have made sure to pay an equal amount of attention to both hoping neither will get jealous. I had hoped with winter coming on we could have 2 house cats in cold weather. Unless I can come up with something to make them get along I think one is still going to stuck outside in the cold this winter which was not what we wanting. Another thing I might add these 2 cats have shared a food bowl outside for 8 years and now on the inside the older cat will growl and swipe at her 8 year old kitten. I have tried adding extra food bowls, etc, .but this hasn't really been a help. I never dreamed that either of these cats would get friendly after all these years and really hate they cannot seem to share the house. I just wanted to ask if anyone else has ever had a similar problem and have a solution. Thanks!
