I'm going to have to put Adoptable back on Panda"s Page again. She fights with everyone now, for no reason. Currently, have her confined to bedroom, but this can't last. Any ideas at all??? I am heartbroken over this. The only one she likes is Sweetie, wven growls at Spot!!.
An upset Daddy

oh no I hope you can make it work this is too sad. I am not sure if this helps or if you tried already, but I read (mom) sometimes kitties have to be slowly re-introduced. As if Panda were a brand to kitty in the house. Like to leave her in a room alone and then swap her food bowl and water bowl out with one from the rest of the kitty houshold, so the slowly get to the cent of one another again, and move the toys, pillows blankets etc...(litter boxes too) around the same way. Then slowly let her out with the other for only short periods of time and allow them to check out her room while she is in another part of the house... I know we did this with Ivey kitty for many months and sometimes it seemed like it would never end but right before Ivey went to the bridge she was learning to tolerate everycat without chasing and growling.
I know this is so hard when they are not getting along.
Oh no we hate to hear this, we have my grandma's kitty living with us Kandi, she doesn't get along with any of us and especially the doggies...she actually lives in a room by herself...Mom hates that she has to have her in a room, but this is the only way we can keep her and we know she won't be adoptable so she will live her life in the room...she does get to come out but we have to be out in another area.
there are no easy answers when you have a kitty that doesn't get along with your other kitties...maybe it will work out.
Please please won't you try a calming collar made by our friend Debby? It really works great! Maybe it will help her!
Just sent it to your daddy along with the coupon code to use.
I agree with Alex! Calming collars work wonders. Heck, even the cheapo store ones that aren't made with loves from Debby do wonders! (But I bets Debby's are better!) I'm a real brat sometimes but those things just take the edge RIGHT off. So do the calming wall plug ins, although they are SUPER strong. Those will chill out everyone (even Kringle! hehehe!) Try those first, don't give up just yet. We're purring for you big time. Definitely try Alex's advice!
We've been told by several people that the ones in the store fall apart and are full of powder. Don't know if it's true but Debbie's are a lot stronger and last up to a year.
Oh no! That calming collar sounds like a great idea and a great place to start! Purring things work out for you and Panda!
Here is what Mommy did to help me feel more social when I first got here (I was very territorial with other cats and aggressive with them too!)
1) Feliway diffusers in every room. Some people say it doesn't work, but it did seem to make things calmer.
2)Composure. It comes in liquid and treats. Mommy got me to eat some of the treats. It did seem to help. It's for sale on the internet and at some vets. Composure contains colustrum, and for whatever reason, it seems to calm me down a bit.
3) Rescue remedy rubbed between shouder blades or on ears. I get this once a day.
4) A calming herbal collar....we haven't tried it, but mom's thinking about one for Natalie.
Mom noticed that when she fed...and continues to do so like this...I am calmer. We are all fed within a few feet of each other...well, except Natalie. She puts down the plates at the same time saying :'Ruffy, Smokie.....Prinny, Little Man (CK).
Bella gets her plate special.
It helps the others and me to feel that I am paid attention to and loved and important.
We hope that this works. We know and understand the dynamics of a small space. Things have been calmer since doing these things. Not perfect, but I only chase the BUB once in awhile and don't bother Ruffy at all, and love CK.
Panda There is some wonderful ideas here. Please try them. I really have nothing to add but to tell your dad to keep his hopes up.
We think there are a lot of ideas here, and meowmy too, has nothing more t this time to add...though she did read once that putting a drop of vanilla on evfurry one in the household of kitties makes them unrecognizable as enemies by the fact that the 'intruder' kitty smells the same as the kitty with the issues...almost too funny.
Sorry you are having this trouble, Daddy of Panda. Minko & I hope you find a happy fix to the trouble.
Sorry you are having problems. I think there is some good advice from my other kitties and I'll be sending purrs.
Sorry to hear about Panda. You got some good ideas here.
Maybe, with hope, it could be some sort of phase she's going through? Don't give up, Daddycat. Concerned purrs for your family!
