I have 2 older cats Madison (tabby to the right) and Victoria (tabby on the left). They were strays I rescued after their mom abandoned their litter and didn't cut the umbilical cord so all 5 from the litter were all entangled & sadly one of the cats died due to the cord being wrapped tightly around him
Any who my M & V are now about 5 1/2 years old & the most perfect cats a girl could ask for!
I recently took in a stray kitten who must be around 8 months old that I call Binx. Found him curled up in the cold & me being the cat obsessed gal I am had to take him in! I wasn't planning on keeping him but he's grown on me & I would feel heart broken to give him to another home. My problem is that he and my Madison do not get along. Anytime he even hears her down the hall he immediately takes off after her. She's so terrified that she will only eat if I'm in the room able to keep him away from her. He doesn't do this with Victoria & loves to cuddle with her but for some reason he's always going after Madison. She's had cuts from him doing this to her. He has plenty of toys & I try to spend a few hours playing with him hoping this will help but so far it hasn't. I've tried putting them in separate rooms which he ends up scratching on the door so bad & crying I have to let him out. I also read somewhere to grab the back of his neck gently and hiss at him when he does this but again this doesn't work. I thought that it would work itself out but it's been over 1 1/2 months & it seems to have gotten worse. I hate seeing Madison so afraid and scared since she's been my baby for so long. Its so heart wrenching when she refuses to come out in the open except for a quick food time when I can shield her. I don't want to have to find a home for Binx but I dont think I can put Madison through anymore of this if there is no hope it will get better for her.
Is there anything else I can try? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
