I have three cats at my house: a four year old female, a three year old male, and a one and a half year old male. All are fixed. We adopted the female at one year old along with one of the males at 5months old and they got along great. When the female was two and half years old we "adopted" a kitten from a litter of feral kittens that we socialized and took care of until they were ready to be put up for adoption. The new kitten was very affectionate with the male cat already in the house and tried very hard to be affectionate with the female, but she was not having it. She would hiss, and growl if he approached her. Well it's been a year and half and the two boys are getting along great however the female is getting much worse with her behavior toward the youngest male. She will growl, hiss, and swat if he gets near her, even if it is just to pass through the hallway. He does not provoke this behavior from her from what I can tell. She will not allow him on the bed by growling and chasing him off if he tries. The female's attitude is getting much worse and I really need some ideas on how to help there two get along well enough to coexist in the same house peacefully. Any help would be wonderful, I'm getting tired of the constant stress so I can't imagine how the kitties feel. Thank you!
