    Are you planning to neuter them?

  • Intend to get them neutered as soon as possible but not sure that will stop them fighting. One of the cats is at vets at moment from fighting and would like to bring him back to live with me

    Unneutered males will fight over females, you won't have this problem with a neutered male. I'd recommend neutering ASAP.

Yes, it will probably work out fine. Once they are both neutered, it will be much easier to get them to stop fighting. I recommend you get them neutered at the same time, and as soon as possible. When you are not around to supervise them, keep them separated until you are sure they are getting along. There may be a bit of yowling and posturing at first, but things should settle down quickly.

I don't think the fighting will persist, but if it lasts longer than you expect, ask for help again. These problems can usually be sorted without much difficulty.


Try to neuter your cat. The best way to stop a cat fight is to spray water to break up the fight.
