As usual I have been un-willingly volunteered to help someone My cousin has asked me (since she knows I'm the cat person) to help her with her cat, but I am at a loss on this one cause everything I know about cat's goes AGAINST this cats behavior... ANYWAY, my cousin has a 3 1/2 year old un-altered male ginger and white cat named Cobby (well, his name is Cobblestone , so we just call him Cob, Cobby, Cobcorn, ect.) maybe as an insight, she got Cobby as a tiny 5 week old kitten about 2 weeks after losing her very first pregnancy, and she has lavished love on that cat ever since, in a word, he's spoiled. But now she has two sons, Colton who will be two in Feb. and Aiden who will be 4 months old tomorrow. Cobby seems to love the kids, and that is beginning to be the problem, because she don't know if it's "love" or jelousy on his part. When Colton was born, Cobby was first seem to be kind of "obsessive", he was always RIGHT there when changing his diaper, or feeding him, when Colton would wake up and cry, Cobby always beat my cousin to the crib. But that was it, he was just "in the way" all the time The Biggest problems started when Aiden was born, Cobby's behavior was pretty much the same as when Colton was born for a few weeks, then he started getting kinda wierd. My cousin noticed that the cat didn't like when her husband would hold the baby, Cobby would stiffen and start growling, this went on for a few days then it esculated, going from growling to what it is today. now Cobby is absolutely crazy, he doesn't like ANYONE being around Aiden except for my cousin, he goes nuts when her husband, or anyone else holds Aiden, or trys to do anything, he growls, hisses, spits, tail wagging, fur along the spine rose up ect. when my cousin has company the first thing Cobby does is park himself near the baby and growl. he has tried to pick the baby up by his shirt and "move" him, which my cousin ofcourse afraid Aiden will get hurt, but ofcourse the cat's not strong enough to pull the baby around, but he tries. and the other day while I was there, Cobby even attacked my cousins friends boyfriend, leaving some very nasty scratches on his chest. My cousin's husband is making her finally get Cobby neutered, that's his christmas present , getting his man hood chopped off. Cobby has grown "ok" with me, because I always give him scritches and pet's before I do anything else when I go over there. recently when my cousin has company, she puts Cobby outside, but he will sit there and scratch and the door and meow for over an hour sometimes. like I said, this goes beyond everything I've ever known with cats, nost cats I've known have been like "GREAT, another one of THOSE in the house" My cousin doesn't want to get rid of Cobby, but she says it's starting to look like a very real possibility if neutering doesn't work.
