I have just adopted two cats a six year old female and a four year old male into a one bedroom apartment. At first the female was uneasy with the male. She hid under the bed and couch and kept her distance while the male was very easy going. Over a few days, the cats got a little feisty but I don't think it was anything too bad. Although, now the female cat is completely at ease and the male cat is deathly afraid of her. If we do not separate them, they will eventually get into a fight that sounds really bad. There have been a few cuts here and there. I'm not sure if the female is just trying to play or not because she seems to be very adamant about chasing him down. The cats are now separated unless they are supervised. It has been almost two weeks and I feel like he should not be so scared and they should not be fighting as much as they are, and the bottom line is that the male is afraid and hisses and growls and I don't want to have to take either of them back. Any tips or suggestions would greatly be appreciated. I have perused numerous articles and threads and am not sure what to do.
