Male Cat Attacks Other Cats

My male Scottish fold cat keeps attacking other cats. Every cat that it sees (probably male or female I am not sure) it literally attacks them and I do not know what to do. The only cat it does not attack is my female Scottish Fold/British shorthair however she hisses at him all the time even when I put them in a cage together. It has been a year plus now so I have to keep him locked up, but I don't want to do this.

See your vet. The vet can give medications to calm this aggressive cat down.

I feel that a Vet can help you in this case! It could be something so simple for him,so all of the animals can be one big happy family!

Is this a new behavior? If so, best to get the kitty to the vet ASAP. If this is an ongoing behavior, I still would start with the vet.

Aggressive behavior can be the sign of a health issue, especially if i is a sudden onset behavior.

If it is ongoing, it may be more of a "mental health" issue and could be resolved with the vet--either with a medication or a pheromone treatment.

For safety purposes, keep this guy away from the rest. He doesn't have to be in a crate, maybe closed doors can keep them safely apart in different rooms or different floors of your home.

I used to cat sit cats that had to live upstairs and downstairs from each other their whole lives. It worked for them. At one point there were three cats, 1 per level. Everyone was happy, healthy and had separate, but equal spaces, and each had their own lovie time!

Sometimes cats (like people) just cannot live together. So they have to live together, apart.

Post back what you learn! Blessings!

Has your cat been neutered tom cats can be very territorial especially if there is a female cat on the premises and some breeds of cats are more territorial than others maybe if you get him fixed he will not be as aggressive as he is now but by him being aggressive he is keeping other cat's away that would be breeding your female cat if she's not fixed so that might be a good thing keeping the kitten population down as long as he's not getting hurt and he's not hurting the other cats usually cats have it out quick and then they are done it's not something that goes on and on to wear they hurt each other badly are both of you are still stressed about the situation go to the vet and see about getting your tom cat fixed good luck and I'm so sorry you are dealing with all the stress and as long as he's not attacking people I don't think you have too much to worry about
