Cat Aggression towards other catsI have 5 cats, oldest is 11 years old, youngest is about 7 months old. The past several months have been increasingly getting worse with my older cat, her and the 2nd youngest Cedes (who is about 18 months old) have been fighting, they take turns as to who picks on who, and even my boy has started picking on the oldest one at night when it's bed time. It's getting really bad, and I don't know what to give them to help. History:
DeeJay oldest, has arthritis, but otherwise healthy.
Munchie boy, has bad knees & asthma but otherwise okay.
Cedes, was bottle raised by me and brought home at about 7 months old. She was picked on immensely by DeeJay when we first got her, then roles reversed and she picked on DeeJay, now DeeJay is back to picking on Cedes, & Tigger (youngest). Any suggestions as to what I can use to help?
As to the aggression, DeeJay will 'fly off the handle' and just out of the blue attack one of the other cats, she doesn't attack the Male or my special needs kitty Mini Dee, but the other 2 girls she will attack, chase down the stairs and into the cat house on the landing and beat the stuffing out of the other cat, she mostly picks on Cedes though. When Cedes picks on DeeJay it isn't stalking or anything just more or less swatting at her when DeeJay walks by. Munchie will pick on DeeJay & stalks her when it's bed time (they sleep in my room). All cats are spayed/neutered.
I'm at my wits end with the cat fights though.
