How to Stop Your Cats from Fighting
If you've asked yourself, "Why are my cats fighting? And how do I get them to stop?", you've come to the right place! Here are several tips, and a product recommendation to help your cats go from fighting foes to friendly felines.
Make sure there are enough resources for each cat
- Litter Boxes
- Food and water bowls
- Scratching Posts
Provide additional perches / private hiding areas
- If there are more hiding spots, and places to hang out, this allows each cat to have more of their own space, and reduces conflict
- Cats are very territorial, and if they feel like the other cat is encroaching on their space, that can cause conflict, so it is beneficial for each cat to have their own space!
Reward cats with treats or praise if you see them interacting in a positive way
- If you see your cats getting along, praise them with gentle, kind words, and a treat
Keep Scents Consistent
- Scent is very important to cats, and they like smells they are comfortable with (especially their own scent)
- If your cats were previously getting along, and now they aren’t after an event where one cat could have brought back different scents (like a visit to the vet), rub the returning cat with a towel from home
- Bonus points if the towel has the scent of the cat who remained at home
