Cats can seem to spend a lot of time fighting each other, whether with house mates or with outside cats passing through. Discovering how to stop cats fighting has become a hot topic. This is not a problem, when you deal with the cause with a natural cat health care system.
Cats are not naturally aggressive and certainly they aren’t to people. However, aggression can appear if a cat feels threatened by a strange cat. A brave cat may show aggression, while a timid cat is likely to run and hide. This means that the introduction of a new cat does not come without its challenges. This is normal and natural.
Cats can be quite boisterous in their play, and this is often misunderstood as aggression by people. So don’t always try to break up what appears to be a fight. Be sure it is, before taking action. Lashing tails, whirling balls of fur, yowls and dilated pupils can mean fun is being had by them both, strange though it may seem to us!
If a fight is really in progress, then trying to intervene may make you the target for injury. Cats always take a breath between bouts and that’s when you can claim one of them. But even that is hazardous.
Don’t ever punish a cat. Punishment makes an aggressive cat more aggressive.
So what can you do to stop aggression? Try to remember when it first started. What changed around then? Here are some probabilities.
1. The food you are feeding your cat can make them aggressive. Commercial cat food is full of chemical additives, none of which is doing your cat any good at all. Chemicals are liver toxic.
2. When the liver is compromised, anger and aggression emerges. Has your cat been prescribed a medication or had a recent vaccine? All veterinary medicines are liver toxic.
3. Check for any changes there have been, such as renovations, a newcomer, a guest, a change in your habits or routine, your health. Cats dislike change, so this may upset them. All they need to adapt is time, reassurance and love.
4. Have any chemicals been introduced into the cats’ environment, such as a new household cleaner or the grass was recently fertilised? Cats are very sensitive to chemicals and they are all liver toxic.
5. Make sure you and the health of other family members is treated properly. Pets often take on the energy of the family, trying to help us shoulder the burden of life. Having a calm, relaxed family energy is the pre-requisite to having calm and relaxed felines!
6. Cats like freedom. Fencing off your yard so they can sit in the sun is much healthier for them than keeping them exclusively indoors. Allow them free access inside and out if you safely can.
Cats are natural loners. Having a multi cat household is unnatural. However, I have never had any problems with aggression, outside normal situations, by adopting the above steps. It is possible to stop cats fighting by following natural laws.
