It can be thrilling to get a new pet, but there are also challenges. Cats who attack other cats on sight are one of the challenges. You and your furry friend can both get frustrated and worried. Does he have to stay permanently? The short answer is no, but there are some things you can do to help.
Let’s start by comprehending why your cat acts this way. It’s realistic for some cats to feel terrorized by other cats. Cats may be scared of other cats because of bad experiences with them in the past. However, resolving the problem is vital so your cat can live a happy and healthy life. Keeping your cat inside is one of the best ways to deal with this behavior. That way, he’s less likely to run into other cats and get into fights.
Further, this will keep him secure from any possible dangers outside, such as traffic or other animals. To keep your cat mentally and physically provoked, providing plenty of inspiration and playtime is critical if you keep him indoors. Alternatively, you can train your cat to be more accepting of other cats. The easiest way to do this is with optimistic reinforcement training, where you reward your cat for good behavior. Try slowly introducing your cat to other cats in a controlled and supervised environment, like a pet store or a friend’s house. You’ll need tolerance and time to try this; it only occasionally works.
Trying to force cats to coexist can be stressful and dangerous for everyone involved. Some cats don’t get along with each other. After trying all the above approaches and your cat still acts aggressively towards other cats, think about keeping him inside or rehoming him. Finally, dealing with a cat that attacks other cats can be challenging and stressful. Keeping your cat indoors is only sometimes a good idea, but understanding what’s behind his behavior is essential. Your furry friend must be comfortable and safe no matter what you do, whether training, staying indoors, or rehoming.
