HOW TO STOP MY NEW CAT FROM FIGHTING WITH MY OLDER CATS.

I ADOPTED A TWO YEAR OLD OUTSIDE CAT THAT WAS ABANDONED, HE IS VERY LARGE COMPARED TO MY OTHER THREE CATS..HE CHASES ANS SCRATHES THE OTHERS, AND SOMETIMES THEY INITIATE THE FIGHTING, BECAUSE THEY DO NOT LIKE HIM.

First of all, if your cats aren't all spayed or neutered they need to be. Keep all your cats claws trimmed. Also, it takes time for cats to adjust. A newcomer is going to be defensive and quick to react in fear aggression because he knows he's on other cats territory. The other cats are going to respond to his defensive aggression with aggression too. Cat fights among altered indoor cats usually are more noise and not as serious as they sound or look, fur may fly but in the end usually the most injury anybody gets is a scratch on the nose. You might try Feliway spray, which is a cat calming pheromone spray that many people have successfully used to solve a number of cat problems including fighting and spraying.
