We are trying to accept a 6 year old Norwegian forest cat into our home. We have four very sociable cats already who all get on. The new cat has had a week of settling in, in her own room and then tonight, started to meow at the door to be let out. We let her out and now shes gone up on the landing and no one, man or cat can get past her, shes gone vicious. What can we do?
