    I have two Rex cats, Epidermis a male, and Gizmo, a female. Epidermis has been driving Gizmo insane the last couple days. To the point that she is hissing and fighting him. I thought at first it might have been the long awaited breeding, but he's actually just play-fighting so roughly that she's fed up with him. Does anyone have any ideas on how to curb it? Epidermis is a lot bigger than little Gizmo, and I'm afraid he's going to hurt her... maybe I should just let her fight her own battles and put him in his place? I know this isn't really a cat forum, but thought someone might have some ideas.

    Cute Cat!

    My boy AKA Imp has never stopped harrassing the 2 girls. He like to lay in wait and pounce, They are not amused and scream for help. He's about 4-5 yo so not a kitten anymore. [​IMG]

    Usually with cats the situation sounds a whole lot worse than it actually is and they are just fine if you leave them alone. My female would always scream murder and I'd run to check on her to find out the younger one had batted at her tail and they were just sitting looking at each other. It sounded so horrible that for 2 years I'd go check every single time thinking this is the time something will be attacking her since it is possible for raccoons and stuff to get in our basement. I don't even bother anymore. She's cried wolf too many times.

    YOu could put a collar with a bad taste on it, if he or she bites there...
    Or spray with a water bottle when it escalates...
    Just a thought

    I am sorry.

    The name Epidermis just tickled my funny bone something fierce. What a fantastic and unique name. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I think Dermis just doesn't know his own strength. I got them both at the same time, but I guess because of the two different bloodlines he's much bigger than she is? Of course, he's also a hog.​
