Frederick 's annoying behaviour towards his sister.


Hi everyone, just wondering if any of you can shed any light on Frederick's behaviour towards Betsey-Mae. Both are now 2 years old and Freddie has always been the dominant one out of the three siblings. Dickens, the other male, runs from him, as Freddie is a real bully. Just lately,he has been jumping on top of poor wee Betsey- Mae and biting the back of her neck. He won't let go and she gets distressed. This is happening a lot !!!!!All were neutered/speyed as kittens and Freddie has only started doing this recently.Is there any way to discourage this? Poor Betsey's neck is all bitten and Freddie is VERY hard to dislodge as he just hangs on. Thanks everyone.

The problem still continues with fredereick, but now Dickens is doing it as well. Betse -Mae spits and hisses but Dickens just climbs on top of her and bites her neck, and she can't dislodge him. This is happening all throughout the day and I really don't know how to stop it. Has anyone encountered this behaviour before?

Re: Frederick 's annoying behaviour towards his sister.


Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, Snodgrass is now in on the act with Betsey-Mae too. AND now the three males are trying to do the same with Miracle. Feliway has not had any effect, and i really don't know how to stop my boysThe whole dynamics of the cat group seems to be changing ,with Betsey-Mae and Miracle now being afraid and slinking around in fear. and the three males, especially Frederick,prowling around confidently like lions. I don't like seeing them like this.I've always had a multi cat household and this has never happened before. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do?
