The ongoing saga of "Saving Bengal Neo" twists even further. We're now faced with Neo getting VERY aggro with Sabre. He only has to see Sabre to start hissing, etc. :(

I'm assuming other people have 2 or more male cats and can get them to play together without wanting to have a scrap.

It seems like every step we're taking at the moment is opening up a new problem for us. :roll:

My babies are all male (but only kitties). If they are all neutered and got along previously then can only assume its linked directly to Neo's change in behaviour. Has anything at all changed in his home environment? This one is really puzzling!

Well, we dont seem to think there's a change to the environment, or if there is it's not immediately apparent to us.

We've currently got both Neo and Sabre seperated so that Neo can get used to being around us and the house again.

We're going to try and introduce the pair once a night for about 1/2 hr. If Neo starts up, we'll make it shorter as appropriate.

It's all very odd because Sabre is such a softie really but he is the bigger cat, so I suppose Neo is always sitting in his shadow.

We'll keep you posted. :)

Well, we put Sabre and Neo in the same roon for 1hr last night, and Neo was having a right old hissy fit. As the time went on he was having less of a hissing session, but it's still there. We're going to try for a bit longer each evening and see if it makes any difference.

Hi there - how is everything? Is Neo's behaviour improving any??

well, it's been a little while...

We had Neo in the house for a few days, and he was responding a lot better, to the point that he and Sabre were close to each other without Neo getting aggitated.

We let Neo back out and he seemed to be better, was around the house a bit more, but basically it seems that all we've tried thus far has not done any difference.

He is coming back to the house for food, but he does not seem to be coming back to sleep here, or generally be around the house.

The only thing I can think of now is to get him back in the house and have him confined to the house for a longer period than 4 days.

Any ideas?

I would definitely confine him for longer than 3 days. When you are trying to settle a new adult cat in your home, minimum recommended period is 3 weeks. This can then be followed by short periods outdoors but on a hungry stomach and usually recommend to pick a day the weather is not good.

I know he is not a new adult in your home but I would probably try something similar to this.

Are your lovely neighbours still offering him a 'refuge' from your home?
