Hi everyone.

I got a kitten 7 months ago and we already have a 2 yr old. Things were just OK at first, no major fight but some hissing, swatting and sometime they would just play.

2 months ago I started using feliway and since then it's been great. They sleep next to each other etc...

Today the kitten (now 8 months old) was sleeping soundly and the other cat walked up to him very close and then swatted him very hard and hissed. All that when the kitten was in a deep sleep on the floor where he usually sleeps.

Anyone know what that can be about?

I mean that was just pure evil, my husband couldn't even believe it.

Maybe it's our pregnancy hormones. LOL. Just kidding.

It does make me sad cause the little kitten is so sweet and never hurt anybody or anything. We never had to teach him not to bite us hard because he's always been so careful.

I feel like he's being bullied and now he's all jumpy when he sleeps because I think he feels like he's going to get attacked.

It's not "evil", cats are innocent creatures and don't have the capacity to be evil. :)

She's just letting him know who is boss. Or maybe she wanted the spot he was in. Or maybe she wanted him to wake up and play with her. I don't think it is anything to be worried about.

I agree it's showing kitten who rules the roost around there. Talladega did that to my lil 7 month old kitty too. When I would catch him I grab him by the scruff and pin him on the floor and in no means in a violent way. It's a quick reminder to my Bengal that I rule the roost here and not him. He has since stopped. However, it does depend on the cat, some will respond and some wont. I was lucky that Talladega agreed with me. They do love each other very much and they are both very affectionate cats.
