just a little background: We have 4 cats (serj almost 2 years old, sascha, the mom, almost 2, the helmytt and thao are 10 months old). 1 we have had for a little over a year(serj). We adopted a cat from the humane society only to fnd out she was pregnant and she had her kittens less then a month after we had her. we kept her and the kittens. serj took over being their "dad" and was always very loving and they act just like a family would, affectionate to eachother and all of that stuff when we finally let them all be together. from the age of 3 to 4.5 months old (the kittens) i was out of state and my fiance watched them. he was working long hours so the cats did not get as much attention as they do when i am home. when i got home, one of the kittens,helmytt, was timid, but i have worked with him and he has come around, he listens very well and hardly ever does anything to get "in trouble". serj, the cat we had before we got the mother is a very loving cat too and listens and never gets in trouble. the mother, sascha, was very skidish when we got her but i have worked with her and she slowly came around and once we got her fixed she has became a lot more loving and never gets "in trouble". now to the "problem" cat. thao is crazy about attention. he will get in trouble to get attention, he will do anything for it. if i am giving them catnip, food or anything he pushes his way so he is first. he does not listen at all either. i make sure if i give one cat attention they all get attention (if in the same room) and i mix up the order they get attention so there is no favorites. i am almost at whits end trying to figure out what is wrong. he is soo selfish! he does things he KNOWS he is not suppose to do, and when i catch him and tell him to get down or stop he looks at me and acts like he is going to stop, only to do it again right in front of me. i have tried to spend a little bit of extra time with him and that doesnt seem to work. i am going crazy! sorry there isnt more details but it is late. please i need some advice! if there are any questions please feel free to ask. any advice or help is greatly appreciated.
