I have 10 cats, so having everyone get along on a regular basis is a stretch, but I have a pretty happy household. Oscar is a 3 year nuetered male who I found about 2 years ago. About a year ago he started fighting with one of my other males (also neutered, everyone is). Did bloodwork, etc, decided he was just mean, put him on Prozac, life was good. Well, about 6 months ago he started getting really temperamental. So last week we wnet back to the vet, $355 in bloodwork and tests later, they thought he had diabetes. His bloodsugar was 372, but once they checked his pee, there was no sugar in it. Vet said that cats blood sugar can fluctuate dramatically with stress, so we chalked it up to that. He;s home now, and being more dramatic than ever. Walks around hissing and growling all day. So tonight I put him in my bedroom. Right now he is curled up between me and one of my dogs, happy as a clam. Could it be that he really just hates the other cats that much? Should I put a liter box in here and just let him chill in here for awhile? Could I be successful in reintroducing at a later date? I mean, I'd think he'd be lonely living in my bedroom, but he truly hates being around the cats, but likes the dogs, and he's get to sleep with me every night and hang out while I'm on the computer and stuff. Any thoughts?
