First thanks again for helping with the food situation. We are off the kibble and eating wet food. Some are eating straight raw, some will eat a mixture and of course some will snub it, but at least they are off the dry kibble and I've noticed the dandruff on 2 cats has all but disappeared
My Next issue
This is Maddie, she's a year old and is not happy living in a multi cat household. She has all her shots and she was fixed on June/14th.
Maddie was obtained from a student living in Kingston, she was found wandering around an apartment complex. I suspect she was not taken care of very well as it took quite awhile for her to accept human companionship, she never did take to the other cats. We were hoping she would be a companion for our younger cat, who lost her buddy this winter, but that did not work. Right now she is indoor/outdoor in an enclosure, and just loves to run flat out across the yard and catch butterflies. Every now and again I see the Maddie and Peanut or Akira play run with each other, but that does not last. She spends most of her time alone in another area of the yard or in the cat tree when she's inside.
As long as the other cats are not around she is fine, wants and accepts attention. If other cats are present she growls, will nip you and then scurries away. If a kitten approaches her she will attack it and now some of the older cats are stalking and attacking her. She will approach another cat and automatically become defensive and swat at them. Not a pleasant situation for her or the other cats.
So..I would like to re-home her and if that's not possible find a way to help her with this fear aggression. I've posted her at my local vet's and on Kijiji (I know not the best, but I've already "discouraged" one lady who wanted her to have kittens).
I am new to the Kingston area, so I don't have word of mouth friends to contact and do not want to dump her at a shelter. She doesn't like cats in a large area, in a small one I think she would become "un-adoptable"
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Right now the stress of the situation is causing my older male (Tiggy) to "mark" everything inside and out and his sister (Callie) is the one attacking her. Rosie is now attacking Callie in retaliation of Maddie attacking her and round and round it goes.
