My two cats one is a Bengal (the oldest) and one is a manx. Everytime they see each other they want to fight. The manx stays in my daughters room all day I know he would like to come out and be among us. He is unusally mean also. He does not like to be petted like the Bengal does. When I hold the Bengal and my daughter holds the Manx and we bring them together the Bengal just smells the manx, but the Manx hisses and snarls at the Bengal. The Manx is even mean to my dog who is a poodle. He hits at her and slaps her ears. My Bengal is the sweetest man I know. He comes when I call him, and he always asks for treats (meows). He even uses the toilet like a human being (if he only would flush). He is a good kitty. The Manx is a red devil. He is a red haired cat with a mood to match. He will allow my daughter to hold him and pet him to a certain extent but he will strike at her also. He has drawn blood from me a couple of times. Could somebody please help me to tame this devil.
They are both neutered
Answer by MM E
The method you used is not effective with cats. First, I hope they are both neutered, if they are not neutered you will have real problems. I have three cats, one female and two males.They get along fine now, we just left them alone and they worked it out themselves, yes they fought for awhile, but nothing serious happened, it was all show, hissing etc. after a while they got the leadership problem resolved and all is well now.
