Hello, I am new here - and very in need of advice. About a month ago, we adopted a three year old maine coon male, who at first was meek and sweet, but who has now taken over the house. He is casual and unafraid of our two large dogs, leads us around with very loud meowing when he wants food, wakes us up before dawn by kneading our pillow, turning up the purr volume, licking our faces and meowing - is adorable and angelic acting - but if our sweet little female cat even enters a room, he CHASES her away. He lies in wait for her, and will do anything he can to get around an obstacle to take off and chase her. She now hides in the basement or outside every day. She is so scared, that even if you carry her to one of the bedrooms and shut the door, she keeps watching, with a defensive growl, just in case he might come in. It's so sad. I know it's similar to another post. I'll be following advice from that, too. We just want her to be able to walk through her own house again and act like herself. How do we get her over her fear? Thanks!
