kittehgohmoo asked: Hey i response to your question. Has the adult male cat been aggressive in any way o.o and what breed in the female. Because if she is a tortise shell cat then its understandable. And maybe you should just try to occupy one while you give the other attention because my friend has the same problem with her cats and its been going on for 2 years with no let up. Hopefully she grows out of it and gets use to him but, just give it more time :P.
Thanks for the response :( The adult male is an orange tabby and the younger female (who’s ~1 yr) is a black domestic long-hair. The adult male is TERRIFIED of her and hasn’t been aggressive, only defensive: he starts hissing and growling and backing away when I force them to be near each other (I’ve tried crating her while he’s in the same room). I can get her to play in the same room as him, but the moment I stop she starts stalking after him. He’s just scared and hides under the couch 24/7. I feel awful for both of them because the orange tabby is scared and the female wants attention that I can’t give her when I have to divide my time :( Does your friend keep them in separate rooms all the time?
i got 2 cats and they absolutely HATE each other.
i got them at the same time and i did everything i was told to do—i kept them in separate rooms and fed them/gave them treats near the door so they’d get used to each other’s scents and associate one another with positive events. i swapped their rooms (twice now) and had them share blankets etc… but it’s been a month and i can’t open the door without the younger, female cat dashing out and attacking the older, male cat.
SUGGESTIONS??? please :( i don’t mind keeping them in separate rooms but i don’t think it is fair to either of them that i have to divide my attention between the two :(
When a group of dog rescuers arrived at the market to show the dogs available for adoption, somebody had left 12 puppies on the street – 8 of them were approximately 5 weeks old.
In shock, the rescuers didn’t know what to do. The group had recently canceled several adoption days at the market because of bad weather, so they were over their capacity with puppies still needing to be adopted out. Also, the abandoned puppies were so small that they needed to be fed every two hours, including at night.
That’s when a spayed stray dog approached, lay down beside the shoe box where the puppies were sleeping, and began caring for them.
She wouldn’t let anyone get near the babies.
Very carefully, the rescuers placed the puppies closer to her.
She began caressing them and offering the warmth of her belly to the newborns.
The maternal instinct kicked in and…
after a few hours, she had milk and was feeding the puppies.
The rescue group named her Vida, which means “life” in Portuguese.
OMG POOR PUPPY
