This is true. And if it is a dominance thing, you need to be careful. When my tomcat saw an outside cat, and then smelt her on me, he attacked me. And that was after all his spraying started. Then, he attacked my mom, too. If it is a dominiance thing, you need to handle it right away before things get out of hand, as I learned the hard way. If she is unaltered, I would recommend this, as well, because once she's spayed, there's no reason to be territorial. You will definitely know it's a dominance problem if she starts spraying (though I'm not sure if this is too common in females... not sure, someone help me here?
) , or puffs up when she sees an outside cat or smells it. I hope all goes well! Good luck!
