Have a question about one of my cats.
I have 3 cats now, but in the past have had up to 6. Cats have come in from difficult situations, and been cared for here until I have been able to find good homes for them. I have taken in both males and females in the past, neutered and un-neutered, and have also had new born kittens in the house.
The 3 cats are now own are Tinkerbelle a 2 yr old un-neutered female.
And jasper and Zee, I have had jasper and zee from birth, they were out of a feral mum and dad, and are now 7 years old in may. They are both enormous cats and although spayed are known for fighting with other cats in the area.
Al the cats have always goton in the home, obviously providing one is not intentionally antagonising another, in which case a bit of hissing may occur at most.
This is until about a week or 2 ago. Jasper in this time has started to attack the other cats? He has chased and attacked Tinkerbelle on more than one occasion, and twice I have had to seperate him and Zee as they have been having a full on roll around, hair flying fight.
About 5 months ago he started getting a bit spiteful with my daughter and even a couple of times with me, he also keeps going for the dog.
I have had him checked by the vet who said he is in good health, and her only suggestion was maybe to consider re-homing him.
For me this is not an option, I have had him from a babe, so seven years, I absolutely unconditionally adore him, and could never imagine not having him.
I wondered if anyone had any ideas why he has suddenly started behaving strangely. Or any suggestions as to what I can do.
Like I said rehoming is not an option, so I desperately need advice.
Many thanks in advance...
