i have 6 cats. my confession is....one of them lives in my bedroom. sami who is 4 has lived in there about 2 months now. heres the story. sami has got an attitude towards my other cats. she will smack at them when they just walk by her. well sturdy who is a very strong male who is 3 and weighs about 15 would always chase her and try to start something with sami. sami is a 4 year old female who only weighs about 5 pounds. thing is one minute they would cuddle and bathe eachother the next they would fight. minor fights. well about 2 months ago, sturdy attacked sami. it was horrible. my husband had to tackle study and hold him down. he would not stop. sturdy got loose and went after her again. i was able to get sami. were talking SERIOUS cat fight. my other cats were freaking. flared tails, creeping, ect. well we seperated them for a couple of hours. brought sami back out and everything was fine. they cuddled and went to sleep togather. next morning, they were bathing eachother and it happened again. this really upset my 9 year old. she was crying i was shaking. so.. we put sami back up. for weeks we would try and bring sami out. her little body would just shake. she would hiss at any of the cats. we did not put her down. just held her. so that is why sami lives in my bedroom. she seems happy in there. she gets plenty of love in there. the reason we did not put sturdy in there is sami has got attitude . she does not get along with anybody. except humans. she is the most luvy duvy cat. she even gives kisses. i can not get rid of either cat. i love all of them. by the way, my daughter said if sturdy goes, she goes. ha! i would not trust anybody to give sami a good home. theres too many cruel people in this world. i mean, if i knew there was somebody like any of you ready this right now, who would take sami, i'd consider it. but how do you know about these things. so, i guess sami will just live in my bedroom. please give me some honest opinions of my situation. i feel bad she has to stay in there. one more thing. months prior to the big fight we put sami on ovaban for a short time. because i seen this coming with sturdy. sturdy was on it to. i would love to bring sami out but i can't say it would not happen again. i can't put sami threw that again. i guess they had a love hate relationship. am i bad or selfish for keeping sami in there?
