Cats on the Couch: Tame an Aggressive Cat

An aggressive cat unleashes his energy on a person with a slight fear of cats. Will a new cat companion help tame him?

Marla thought this was the ideal solution. Chrissy was dubious but agreed to the program.

A few weeks later, Scarlett moved in with Roscoe. Marla and Chrissy adhered to my program. The next progress report clearly described a victory. Scarlett was out of the carrier most of the time and Roscoe spent much of his time with her. Chrissy was still wary of Roscoe but more relaxed. Marla was confident Scarlett would be open to her affection in time. For now it wasn't a priorityRoscoe had a playmate and Chrissy no longer felt like his scape-person.

This is a good article. It shows that it takes time to solve a problem. You have to work on the cat's time, not the human's time.

This sounds like an ideal solution, however I am 78 and husband 84, and he refuses to get another animal. My Rascal is only 2. He is a lover most of the time, but if he does not have my complete attention when He wants, I get bitten, drawing blood. Is there another solution? Is medication an option?

Good article. My cat Kamry is literally an attack cat. If a family member comes in my apartment when I'm not here she goes to attack mode to defend the home. Also thee have been times when she had bitten me but I think it is because I missed her other signals.
