|Have you noticed any fighting between Sonny & Macy? Are they interacting any differently than usual? Sonny's pering on the bed could be due to a number of different reasons. One thing that comes to mind is that you said you have two litterboxes. Some cats can have a preferance for a certain litterbox, & perhaps the one that was dirty is the one he prefers the most. Do you frequently clean out the littetboxes? I mean, empty the old litter & disinfect the whole box? Sometimes bacteria & mold can build up. Every couple of months I thoroughly scrub mine with soap & water, and then scrub them with white, distilled vinegar. The vinegar will kill any bacteria and/or mold.
If it's a territorial issue, I suggest watching your two cats interactions very carefully to see if they are having any issues. If so, I recommend purchasing "Feliway" cat pheramones. You can get it in spray form or in a plug-in diffuser. This product can work wonders to destress an insecure cat. Also, try having plsy time with both cats on a regular basis...play with them together...make them take turns playing with a string or some other toy. I have 8 cats & some don't get along with others. To help them bond, about once a week I gather them in the livingroom for play time, then after playtime I give them catnip, then to top it all off I then give them some treats. This seems to really help keep them as a well balanced group.
Hope something I said may help. Good luck to you & your fur-babies!
