Hi - I have a little problem with my cat. Lucy Lu is 3 years old. I have had her since she was a kitten and she used to be extremely friendly and loving, then she disappeared for 8 weeks and in the mean time i got another kitten. Completely by chance I found Lucy again. When she met Jay Jay (kitten) she went from licking him to death to hissing and scratching him. Since she has been back she has been quite the opposite of friendly and loving. she has literally run out of our house to attack two dogs, in both cases the dog come worse off. My nephew was over for dinner and she attacked him, leaving a nasty scratch on his hand. I have now spoken with a behaviorist and they tell me she is suffering from 3 different kinds of aggression as she is also attacking me and my partner. I have taken her to the vet to be checked over and she is fit and healthy -they have given me a room sensortisor which should give out cat pheremones and make her feel more comfortable. If that does not work in two weeks I have been told she will be referred to the behaviorist for an 8 week course, where they visit us at home and it will cost £250. Anyone out there have or had the same problem and managed to stop it before having to spend hundreds of £'s???
