Is my kitty being a dominant male, or a playful kitten?
by Roberta D.
My 5 month old Chocolate Point Finn and I just moved in with a friend. She has two dogs and a cat. When her cat, Zilla is in the house, Finn follows her around and sniffs and meows. Zilla hisses and growls. My roommate thinks that he is trying to dominate her, and is really FLIPPING out whenever my kitty-boy leaves our room. When Zilla is in her room, Finn goes to the door and makes the sweetest meow and sits there. I truly think he's playing and wants to be friends. Because when I bring him to another friends house, he plays with their two 2year old cats just fine. Zilla is about 4, Finn is 5 months. She doesn't want to play with him, we can tell. How can we get them to get along? I'm only staying here for a few months. Finns getting neutered this week...but what do I do about my roommate and her flipping out over her cat? I mean, she thinks Zilla will run away and is stress-eating. When I say flipping out, my roommate seems to have a harder time with the two cats then they do with each other. She also separates them immediately. Never letting nature run its course, and she swears she's a cat expert. I just want harmony for the next three months. We only need to make it three months. And this fist week has been LONG. Any advice is welcome!!!!
