I have two cats that have been living together now for 3 years. They have never gotten along, my female is timid and defensive and my male, who was with me first, is jealous, aggressive and sometimes violent. We kept them separated for about 8 months before they could even sit in the same room. He constantly stalks her, especially while she's using the litter box, or sleeping. We just got used to it and it got better as we would separate them when he was too violent, but lately, he's gone back to his ways, biting her to the point of tearing flesh out of her tail area, which led to a vet trip!! As soon as that had healed, he did it again. Now we can't leave them alone anymore, as soon as we turn our back, he attacks her. I am planning a trip to the vet for him, but has anyone else ever dealt with this? I have many cat lover friends, but all of their cats get along famously. I don't expect them to cuddle together, but I worry about her safety, it's like he wants to kill her! Please help if you can!!
