My two male cats fighting

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My two male cats ( Cheech and Butterbean), brothers, just turned a year old a few weeks ago, Both are neutered and are house cats for the most part. I do let them out at times.... Well yesterday I let them out for awhile. Butterbean came in on his own but I had to go out to find Cheech. I did find him but he was with a new cat. We live out in the country so there are lot of cats running around. This new cat did have a collar on so it wasn't a stray/ferrel one. I think maybe it was a female. After I got him inside, both of mine started fighting each other. Then this morning it started up again about 6 am. Could this be a spring time thing or territorial? Could Cheech have the smell of the neighbhood cat on him. I separated them by putting Cheech outside for while and kept Butterbean inside. I really don't know what to do with them. Cheech has always seemed a little more wild then Butterbean.

Star by getting a Feliway diffuser. This seems to help a lot of cats to 'settle down.' A drop of vanilla on each cats chin and the base of the tail will help too since they'll smell the same again. I'd reccommend keeping them completely indoors too.

Sometimes other cat smells can trigger that response. I suggest if you don't want to keep them inside, to train them to a harness/leash or build/buy a cat enclosure.

Try sprinkling cornstarch baby powder on both and rub it in well.
