Hello to all and thanks for being here. I have four cats now. Each cat was adopted one at a time. I adopted the latest about two months ago. His name is ChaChaCharlie or ChaCha. He was abandoned at the apartment complex that I manage. He's very docile and loving, and I could tell that he must have been owned by people and not feral. I took him to the vet first. He's healthy and now has all his shots (he hasn't been neutered yet). When I brought him home, I kept him separate from my other three cats for about 4 days. My other cats, Montgomery, Pretty Boy and Katy(2 boys and a girl)did not accept ChaCha at first, they hiss at him when he tries to play with them (which is all the time) (The background on my first 3 cats: Montgomery or Monty was adopted when he was less than 6 weeks old because he was found alone on the side of highway in Montgomery, Alabama, when he was just a couple weeks old. PB and Katy were adopted from the Humane Society. All were spayed/neutered.) The situation between all 4 cats has become much better, as the others tolerate ChaCha even tho they won't play with him. My problem is with Monty, who sprayed some before ChaCha came to live with us, is now spraying out the cazoo....everywhere & on everything, & it's not just a little misting, he actually has alot of pee shooting out of him. I think it's because Monty's stressed by ChaCha. What can I do to get Monty to stop spraying? And how can I help them feel more comfortable together?
