For the past 2 weeks, my 8 month old male, George, has begun to be very mean to my little female, Pearl. She is very timid and spends most of her time under the bed or in the closet. When she comes out to eat, use the box, or for her evening visit, he attacks her. I can soak him down with the water bottle, and he just won't stop. Leo, my big guy, thinks they are playing and he chases her. He will stop when I tell him to. George is just mean to her. They were buddies until recently. She has been spayed, but he has not been neutered yet. I have never had this problem in all my years of having cats. Do you think it will stop once he is neutered? I would never get rid of any of my babies, but I have to find a way of stopping this. They are tormenting this poor little girl terribly. She had begun to make some progress as far as socializing with us and I don't want this poor baby to be so traumatized she will live under the bed permanently! Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
