Feliway might help:

http://www.feliway.co.uk/Stress-and-...Cat-Households

Also this website might have some useful advice:

http://www.understandinganimals.com/index.php


From that site, there's contact details for a cat behaviour specialist. She's UK based but there's a phone and email contact for her, so might be worth dropping her a line and asking advice:

http://www.understandinganimals.com/...haviourist.php

Again from same site a forum specifically for Cat issues:

http://www.understandinganimals.com/....php?board=2.0

If integration fails, one option is to keep NewKitty for as long as it takes to find an alternative good home.

Quote:
Give away, adult cat, desexed, clean bill of health, was adopted but failed to integrate with existing cats. Free Nissan car included (not confirmed). Long list of name suggestions available.
If you can physically separate the cats until then, you can at least manage the situation until a good home can be found.

Feliway hasn't helped us I'm afraid. But good advice there (ditto Zen)

ohferfux ache.

Amanda, get to the ER i you're still swole up this am. I wish I had advice to offer, wish I had been there... but then my reaction would have been instant and extreme violence against the little monster. ...which I'm sure is the wrong way to handle it.

He is a sweet cat, and when I was playing with him, he was nipping, but being careful not to cut me.... must be that you taste too good to resist.

Sorry you got cut up.

Will keeping them separate permanently cause too much disruption to the daily routine? And yes, get your arm and leg looked at.

If keeping the monster () is not going to be a realistic option, can you advertise on -say- Craigslist for a cat lover who likes a challenge to adopt him?

Jim' girl again...thank you for the responses and advice. I've left all three cats out together this weekend. Generally going well. Kitten is an instigator but he's leaving chase alone. We'll give it another shot and see how it goes. I'm hoping it was just a freak event. Thank you again!

Let newkitty get his/her ass kicked a few times. (S)He'll learn his place in the pecking order soon enough.

And if they do go at it again, throw a glass of water on them instead of wading into the fray!

depends how much damage is being done really, classic.

As a general rule though, I'd agree. Very much the same with dogs as well. But you do have to be careful with that strategy and be ready to step in if things get very nasty. Though...not by actually stepping in...

Get a squirt gun/spray bottle. Almost anything a cat does, that you don't want it to do, just give it a squirt/spray of water when the cat misbehaves. Cats do not like it, and will quickly stop most offending behavior.

Oh, and love on the jealous cat extra-like.

Maybe the new cat gets upset with the other cats because they have real names. If it continues to be an instigator, call it Klyde ... JB for short.

I don't know how they take cats for placement, but Kitty Cottage has a great reputation. I have friends who have gotten kittens and cats from them.
