Hi, We have a 13 1/2 yr old female M. Coon who's so good it's not real - and she's having a terrible time now. Our good sized 11 1/2 yr old R. Blue, a neurotic to begin with, has recently decided Pandora's fair game, and just terrorizes her, chasing til he backs her into a corner and threatening til I rescue her. She has her 'bed', in a corner, on top of a box on a waist-high extra-deep shelf - the latest in her attempts to stay clear of the others (the third is a 1 1/2 yr old male, good, but starting to learn some bad habits from Plato, who's also using his litter box less and less often lately, though is perfectly healthy otherwise - doesn't go more often than normally, but has just decided the floor (various locations!) is more fun... possibly making some statement, though doesn't wait til we're watching or anything. He's just a high anxiety cat (and the breed is known to be that way), but now is obnoxious. He started acting more babyish when the new one (Goblin) came in last year (at 7 wks... there was no choice on that) but in fact they became instant best friends and still are. I hate the idea of putting Plato on Prozac or something, and to get Feliway in Canada costs a fortune - a big chance to take as I'm not sure it would really be appropriate anyhow now. It's not like a new-cat intro. scenario, but he just seems to have such a mean streak now (tho' is loving to me). Any ideas please? Thank you. PS it would also be unfair to Pandy to keep her locked up all day (plus it's our bedroom her bed's in), and I think Plato would just go crazier if we tried to keep him separate from Goblin (and me), never mind seriously messing up an otherwise good feeding schedule of long standing. Thanks.
