That last post about Solomon being cornered should've come from me Daniel.

Anyway - mama is using Feliway and I'm more calm. My brofur Solomon is more outgoing and coming out into the open. That stuff sure works!

Today I cornered Solomon again and tried to scratch him up. But mama stopped me.

The vet thinks mama should try the Feliway and Rescue Remedy too furst, but he said if that doesn't work, after displaying some of my behavior to him, I will probably need medication.

Just give Fifa some time, at least a week or 2, maybe more. It takes different cats different lengths of time to adjust to a newcomer. I am the "newest" of 3 cats living in my mama's home. I've been here about 1 year and a half now, and it took a couple weeks or so fur my brofurs to accept me. Once a couple weeks have passed, if Fifa is displaying any aggression or bullying towards the new one you may have to take action. But fur now just give her time. We girls are furry independent! wink

Hi efuryone, Solomon here....

Now that mama knows my brofur has Alpha Cat Syndrome and has to make herself the "alpha cat" in our home, can you recommend some treatments or medications fur me? I am naturally fearful of Daniel, but if there's something mama can do or give to me that will help me with that, she & I would be so grrrateful.

Solomon's mama here...

Thanx to everyone so far for your help!

Hi again,

Furst we want to say we sure hope you don't think mama is stupid or selfish.

Me and my siblings are all spayed and neutered. Mama does NOT want to try drugs either even tho it might sound that way. She's just not sure the alternative meds will do the trick. If she can learn what to do without drugs, she would rather do that. We hope you don't think mama is a wimp or has her own agenda. My mama cares about ALL of us and is open to advice.

Mama is looking fur instructions as how to establish herself as the alpha cat too. That is why we are asking advice here. Please try to understand that. She is looking fur help. We don't have any cat behaviorists in our area, and mama doesn't have a car to drive out to the ones farther away. Mama says maybe you can help tell her how to establish herself as the alpha cat...mama also wants you to know she has intereceded many times on Solomon's behalf and will do everything she can to keep him, and all of us, SAFE, happy and getting along.

I am kept isolated from my siblings when mama's unable to supervise me. I hiss when she makes me go in the bedroom but it is only to keep the peace in the house. Ofurwise, I roam about the house but ONLY when she's there. Really and truly, most of the time we do get along. I know it might not seem that way to you, but we do. I hope you don't think she lets me get away with things. Mama does give me warnings and such. Mama just needs to find out what else she can do when I start to display my aggressive tendencies.

If you can offer some tips to mama she would really appreciate it.
Re-homing us is the very last thing she would do. She believes there is an answer to this without having to do that, altho if necessary she would do it (and I can promise you it would break her heart into a million pieces).

Daniel, his mama, and Solomon

PS Serena gets along with all of us just fine. We really and truly hope nobody on here thinks mama wants things her way, is unwilling to listen, etc. Mama is desperate to try anything to help us.

Hi there,

Mama has tried Feliway and we aren't sure if it works or not. A few years ago she got us Feliway collars. Well I took care of mine - I chewed it off. So then mama put a 2nd one on me, and I chewed that one off, too. So I am one determined bossy boy. Mama is thinking I wasn't socialized properly as a kitten (I was in 2 homes prior to this one as a kitten) and that is perhaps why I am somewhat of a bully towards Solomon. I do try and boss my sisfur Serena around but she bosses me back.
Tonight I chased Solomon as he was going to a hiding place. (Mama says poor Solly is hiding and she feels bad. Hmph.)

Mama isn't sure this Rescue Remedy stuff will be enough to stop me from picking on my siblings. But her vet won't prescribe anything because they think it'll make me a "zombie". Mama said she believes that with the right dose it will work & that if it makes me a zombie the dose is too high. Also she doesn't have a lot of money to spend on treatments that claim to work and don't, so she's hesitant to buy stuff like Rescue Remedy, Bully Remedy, etc. etc. Mama says she wants to see some changes now.

Hi there,

I have a problem (or so my mama says)...I am furry protective of my mama and I bite and attack anyone who tries to hurt her. that includes ofur kitties. My brofur Solomon, who's already weak, hissed at mama and I ran over and attacked him. It was purrty vicious too, and it's the 4th time in my life I've done this to him. Mama took the brunt of it, getting my bites and scratches, but I did give Solly some scratches and possibly a bite wound. Solomon has already been treated fur his wounds but now the issue about me and my behavior has arisen. You see, I have a tendency to hiss at mama fur no reason sometimes. I hiss when I can't go in the bedroom with her. I hiss when I don't get my way. I hiss just because I like to hiss. She keeps me separated from Solomon and I don't like it because I consider mama MINE. Mama doesn't want to rehome me. This is my 3rd home and mama says it is my furever one. She doesn't have a lot of money. What can she do?
