Please Please! Help (don't ignore this plz)

My cat toasha is 4 or 5 years old now and we consider her a elder cat and she's very shy and hates playing and ever since we got jack he always pounces on toasha play fighting with her so since he can't take a hint toasha literally attacks him she doesn't use claws because she does realize he's just a kitten but she bites him and jack always try's to claw her face and neck and I'm afraid one of them will eventually get very hurt. Please help!

I didn't say they don't have feelings they do just not jealousy they have almost every feeling a human can have but not jealousy because even if they are domesticated animals they still are wild at heart so they still go by wild cat rules even though they are infact domesticated.

Ok my cats fighting has already been stated twice now that the problem is solved but thank you for your concern and though cats have feelings like humans they don't get jealous, jealousy is not a trait in a cat but if you mean they are getting territorial and wanting to establish dominance then that's a very good explanation
reply

Toasha isn't that old (cats can live up to 20 years) also you should separate them
Your_Average_Fangirl
Oh don't worry the problems been taken care of now apparently jack just needed time to mature thanks for your concern though!
reply
RoseHeart
That's good, Toasha should live at least 10 more years if she doesn't get sick

Cat specialist here! Got 5 of my own so I know what's up. You have to do a re-introduction. Basically, you're going to separate them for a bit, then slowly re-introduce them to each other by placing them in the same room with foods, toys, distractions, cat nip, and hiding places. Control the situation and make sure the cats are happy. Ask me for more if this isn't enough.

Yes I watch it sometimes

Cats are tough. This would happen on the streets normally anyway. She won't hurt him seriously, just put him off.

Well, older cats are very territorial than younger cats younger cats are curious and I think u should ask the vet about these kinds of problems they know 😊
Your_Average_Fangirl
That's good and all it really is but since toasha is old and doesn't play she runs away from him and she's always 10 seconds away from a mental breakdown so I need to find a way to get them both to make up with eachother

Relax. I have the EXACT SAME situation with my two cats & I KNOW (especially since my mum's a vet) that they are only play fighting, however terrifying (yes, I know how terrifying it can be). Jack and Toasha are simply trying to establish dominance. If Jack gets too bad, one swipe with claws from Toasha will put him off. You only need to worry if you start noticing that Toasha has bald spots , is over grooming a particular area, ignoring her food or limping/in obvious pain, in See More▼

Thank you so much! When will their dominance establishment stop though? Just curious.
reply
Celia_Bowen
Well it all depends on the animals. Sometimes it will continue even after dominance is established, or sometimes it can last less than a week. I really couldn't tell you. Personally though, my cats started to stop at about the two month mark, occasionally they still squabble, but nowhere near how they used to.
