I have three cats.. all fairly young. A feral female, her son (who was born in the house, and very friendly) and another female (calico). For a while the two females have not gotten along, and though we did the long intro, as described by people on this board, they seem to continually get into it. In any case, we just got new rug, put it down, and they are destroying it (all three!!). I *think* it is a territory issue (and a new rug, so they all have to mark it), but it makes me realize that it might be better to try to fix the underlying problem with the females. I am just not sure what to do... we have a large amount of space for them but they all seem to want to be in the same place. Would it be worthwhile to try those cat pheromones? I know it sounds stupid but this is the first nice rug we have had and I hate to see it get destroyed! We have several scratching posts, and a sacrificial chair so they are not deprived of things to sharpen on.
