This actually is one of the ways a cat will show dominance over others, and it's possible that your senior gent is showing the other 2 that he's in charge. Most of the time, the others will accept it and say "OK! You're the boss!" But, remember that you are the ultimate boss, and if this behavior is getting out of hand, fur is flying and blood is flowing, it's perfectly allright to say, loudly without shrieking, "Knock it off, Fluffy!" You can accompany this by shaking a soda can with a few pennies taped in it at him. Also, your cat is about 91 in human years, and if he hasn't been to his doc's in a while, he should go just to make sure he's doing OK. He doesn't necessarily have to be acting sick for you to take him for a well-kitty check.
