We have a 9 year old female cat that has been hitting spitting and very verbal towards our 4 (almost 5) year-old Male cat. Both have been neutered so they can’t breed.
We have had Willow since he was old enough to leave his Mum.
Tinkerbell (our female cat) took a few days to accept him but then mothered him (Tinkerbell hasn’t had kittens) and told him off if he was being to naughty.
I can’t figure out what’s causing her to be like this for the past few weeks. I don’t know what to do to help. Willow can just be walking past her and she will go for him! He could even be fast asleep and she will hiss, spit and hit him!
It’s starting to affect Willow. He’s always been a jumpy cat, scared of his own shadow. Now though he’s even more jumpy and has been licking and pulling his fur out.
To take Tinkerbell to the vets is very stressful for her (to the point that she starts foaming at the mouth).
Can anyone advise me on what’s going on and how to help stop this.
