, neutered males do make better pets.
Deeve said she lived on the third floor of an apartment so that is probably unlikely unless there has been cats wandering the halls of the apartment.
That's a possibility.
Cats are ferocious fighters. It wouldn't matter who "started the fight". It would always be the dog who looked like he got the worse of it. Dogs generally just bite. Cats use teeth and nails. I wonder if the kitty has ever been checked over for puncture wounds from the pup?
Deeve - L4H has mentioned Feliway a couple of times. It works as a calming agent for cats. It is readily available in the States. You can get it as a plug in or as a spray. In your case it may be better to get it as both. The spray acts quickly and can be given when you notice Micaud starting to get agitated. You spray a small amount on his collar or near his chin. Not directly on him though. It would probably go a long way, along with the neutering, to make him a calmer kitty.
Micaud - good luck today.
