Well in the last month I packed a uhaul and 3 cats into my jeep and drove 2,200 miles to get from michigan to Arizona. We made it just fine. The cats did wonderful! They slept all the way here. Spent their nights running around the hotel rooms. Well i came out here to go to school so i am staying with my aunt till i get a job and school all set up. My aunt has 2 older cats Sydney is 16 and Bonnie is about 7 (maybe older). Well George, my kitten, Quickly figured out that if they hiss in his face it means go the other way! Unfortantly the 2 adults i have, Tubby Cat and Angel, Have figued out if they are getting hissed at it means fight for their lives. The first thing we did was put soft claws on them because my aunts cats all had little claw marks on thier faces. George didn't need them but the adults did. This hasn't seemed to make that much of a difference. Next idea was the feliway spary. Also no difference. I am at such a loss. We are now taking turns locking the cats in our rooms so the others have free run. I don' t know what to do. My adults seem like they just want to be friends. They will walk right up to her cats and sniff them and as soon as they turn and hiss in their faces that's when mine puff up and fight back. They really seem like if i could get hers to stop hissing mine would stop bothering them. Please ANY suggestions?!
