Thanx I will try that .....Well i think they should work it out alone also some times but they are now going crazy the younger one is trying to scratch and the older one is declawed so it really isnt fair andd i am worried for her safetey when they are alone. ~lovey
the one that does have claws needs to have his nails kept trimmed, if he is an indoor only cat. i have a squirt gun myself. i even named it the "peacemaker". it works wonders for the the occasional much needed attitude adjustments around my house. all i have to do is just reach for it and *poof* problem resolved. amazing little invention.
I second the squirt gun idea and clipping the claws. Since I started clipping Ping's claws I noticed a big change in the way he acted within just a day or two. I don't know if clipping the claws actually had anything to do with it but he does seem calmer. Clipping the claws are quick and easy once you and the cat get used to it.
yeah, that seems to work...I also used comfort zone with feliway in it when I introduced my sisters cat to my roomates. Still took them a couple days to get used to each other but it seemed to work great!!
I once read to give both cats a bath that are fighting(clip nails first). Once they are all wet put them in a very small room or crate together, with all the licking they do they will start licking each other. ? I would also make sure it is nice and warm!
I still plan on trying it someday, I find it easier just to keep them separate. I hate giving cats a bath! :)
I guess it wouldn't hurt to try and if they still are fighting when all wet it is pretty easy to separate them.
