Well last night Isaac attacked Levi & pulled out a chunk of his hair. My poor Levi has a 1/2" x 1/4" bald patch on the right side of his back. At first I thought it was totally unprovoked, but then I figured out what happend. Every time Levi & Jordan are playing if Jordan lets out any kind of noise that sounds like pain Isaac runs in & chases Levi away. It has never resulted in any bodily harm to Levi. Usually Levi runs away & that's the end. Well last night Jordan had poop (sorry it's gross) hanging from his butt & I was holding him trying to get it off. Well he let out a meow & hissed at me. After I had already let Jordan Isaac went after Levi. I had my back turned so I didn't see it hapen, but by the hair left on the floor & the bald patch it was not good. Jordan is alpha Isaac is a close second, Maggie is 3rd & poor Levi is the bottom cat. I would never give either one up, but I was very mad at Isaac. So I'm trying to figure out how to stop this from happening again especially when I'm not around. My appartment is small & the only room that really has a door is the bathroom. It's a tiny room & I can't imagine making anyone stay in that room all day while I'm gone; however, if that's what needs to happen I can do it I'm just wondering who? I don't want Levi to feel like he's being punished, but I'm afraid it will only make Isaac more mad. I also don't want to make the rest of the appartment Isaac's territory & run the risk he won't let Levi back in. Help!!
