Suddenly Aggressive

Our 5-year-old neutered male cat, Yazi, has suddenly become fairly aggressive towards our other two cats, a 3-year-old neutered male and a 3-year-old (estimate by vet) spayed female. Now, he's never really gotten along with Thunder, the girl, to begin with, but now any time he see's either of them puffs up and starts to growl and will hit them if they get close enough to him. Sometimes he even runs after them to hit them if they back away too quickly. I really don't have any idea what could have caused this, or what we can do to get him to stop. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I got a valentine!

3 cats, Yazi, Bit, and Thunder
8 rats, Bob, Cocoa, Zara, Kennit, Aviendha, Skewer, Bean, and Raleigh
3 mice, Briella, Sophie, and Jackson

My 5 year old acts exactly the same with the 2 kittens I have (one is now 6 months and the other about 12 weeks). Have they been together all along? Literally mine will run across the room to hit them if they are playing or doing something she doesnt think is the right "behavior" in her little kitty mind. I bought feliway and it has helped to a point. Otherwise I have to make sure they all have seperate everything from toys to thier bowls. If you find something that works well I'd love to try also as she will even sniff them when sleeping then wack them out of the blue.

Well, The two boys have been together since the younger was about 10 weeks old. And the girl has been with us for about a year and a half now.

My stepmothers cat has become aggressive towards the cat she grew up with. They are about 3 or 4 I think and are both spayed. The vet told my stepmom that it was psychological and that she would have to treat it with medication. Her two cats are severly inbred. I think the dr said that probably has something to do with it. Im not saying that could be why yours is or anything. Just maybe is Psychological. Did you call your vet?

The cats my stepmom has she got off of some woman who has about 50 cats running around. They are about a 3rd of the size of normal cats, apparently from inbreeding. Its very sad.

No, we havn't called the vet yet, but he seems to have calmed back down. He was even sleeping cuddled up with Bit yesterday, so maybe something was just bothering him for a few days?
