Default Animal cruelty Correcting a bully (not for namby-pamby types)

So, to give my other cats some breathing room during the day, enter
packaging tape. I put the bully cat's leg in a sling for an hour, maybe
twice a day. Alternating legs, to help prevent strain at first. The tape
goes around the back of its head and around one or the other leg, as
loosely as possible but not so loose that it can get out of it. Also, I
fold the tape over at the end so it is easy to remove.
So far it's going well. The other cats have a chance to play and it's so
much easier to be nice to the bully when I know it's not constantly
terrorizing them. The bully is learning to walk on three legs. Can't
wait to see if it learns to be a bully on three legs, but I doubt it.
If you are in a similar situation but are squeamish about that method,
you can probably accomplish the same by separating the bully cat from
your other cats for the same time periods. Or you could put it in a
cage. Depending on how this goes in the long run, I will consider doing
something else. But the cage is more restrictive, and a separate room
doesn't allow the bully to at least see what's going on.


This is barbaric. I'm sure San Antonio has a humane society that
can be contacted...
