Where do they sleep?

I have a cat tree next to my bed with three levels, and my two
sometimes fight to see who can be "Top Cat" - especially when it's
bedtime. But it's not a big deal. One of them usually backs down
before I can say something to them.

It ain't easy. But you should clip the aggressor's claws. Cats depend on
their claws, it's their livelihood, it's their life. That's why so many
expressions associate claws with cats. Clipping the aggressor's claws is
a great way to help minimize any damage. It might not stop the trauma,
but it will stop the injury. It might even eventually be understood that
the aggressor has dull claws (I doubt it but it's possible).

Of course the other reply was a mistake.


I have a new stray, a large female that treats the other cats as toys.
Using a tale extender is another method for coping with a bully. Instead
of putting a bell on their collar, you can put it on their tail where
it's more effective. The newcomer thinks everything that moves is a toy,
it is twice the size of my calico, and it is causing the calico
noticeable anxiety. It is unrelenting. The first round of using a tale
extender went reasonably well. The newcomer is a great cat, but it must
be shepherded to take into account the fact that the calico cannot run
away.

Also useful is to make sure they are separated when your way. Since I've
noticed the anxiety, I have become more assertive in stepping in to stop
the newcomer when the calico has obviously been pushed to its limit.

Should be...
