O T , every now and then gets on a kick of ambushing Willow and Piglett as
they come around a corner. Well, I hope today was his last time with
Willow. She weighs about 5 lbs at most and he was 16 at his last vet trip.

Today as she came out of the kitchen, he landed on her. You could hear the
air whissssh out of her. Next thing you would have thought the White
tornado front an old commercial had landed in my house. She smacked the
snot out of him and he has two scratches on his face to show for it. He
hissed but was so surprised by the attack, he just stood there and took it.
Tonight, he is walking a wide path around her and the fishtank house.

Nice. Sometimes they've just had enough.

Hopefully they will get over it.

If I thought the male was being overly aggressive and causing
injury or serious distress, I would have clipped his claws. Claw
clipping is a very good behavior modifier IMO. My two cats usually
get along great here, but I have used that method once or twice.

Maybe he needs a lot of exercise/play?

Good luck.
