I'm really upset because he's the first cat that i've ever had and although he was really really sweet he also had a bad side. He attacked my brother a few days ago and he missed out on doing some exams because of it and so we decided to put him down because he has attacked (severly) almost everyone in my family. He was really sweet though and it's so hard to have to put him down :sad: At least my other cat will be happy without him.

:sad:

Some pics of him :awww:

Yeah, it's sad to be putting him down because he had a very sweet personality sometimes. But it's for the best, because next time the injury could be worse.

In regard to that last photo, he used to go crazy over that dirty dressing gown, lol.

Had my doggie put down early in the year...see my signature...she was very ill.
It was tough..we stayed with her while they gave her the injection.

Are you certain that nobody else can give your cat a home...it seems a pity to put him to sleep just because he is a grumpy cat? Maybe your vet could suggest a way of locating a possible owner. Did he only start behaving this way when you got your second cat???

trust me, i don't want to put him down. my mum thinks that he will just go and attack other people if he is rehoused, and it's too late anyway, he's at the vet now :sad:

Oh dear....its a pity he couldn't be relocated.

As I asked before...did his behaviour change after you introduced a new cat to the household???

Yeah :sad: it's a he ;) his name is/was Monty.

No, he was quite savage before we got Annabel but we gave him female hormone injections which made him slightly more mellow, but he still is a bit savage :bigcry:

Actually yes it did, quite dramatically. He attacked our other cat Annabel several weeks after we re-housed her (we got her from the RSPCA). He was very annoyed we had got another cat.


We tried putting them together on multiple occasions but Annabel was so frightened of him that she got into the habit of wetting herself, and since then it's all been down hill and whenever he see's her he will attack her.

Male cats are very territorial and many will simply not tolerate other cats, male or female in their territories. Some male cats, notably desexed ones, will tolerate new additions to their territories if the integration is done with the male being of a young age.....but usually it is very difficult to integrate new cats into another cats territory easily. Its a pity you couldn't rectify the problem with relocation...I probably would have tried to relocate the female cat...but whats done is done.

Hon, that's awful, I'm sorry.:sad:

It sounded like it needed to be in a one-cat home.

My 16 year old Yorkie had to be put down a few weeks ago. He had congestive heart failure and a lot of other problems, couldn't eat or anything... it's hard.

Why is your cat violent?

Really, I have found the opposite usually the females are far more vicious than the males.
My family are real cat lovers always had cats, always had them desexed and the females are far more territory than males.
I have a desexed male cat myself who is huge, he is built like a tank but is fine if a dog comes into the house.
When he is outside he has no problem with other cats to my surprise he is actually quite friendly.

Female cats can indeed be territorially aggressive...although the territory they rule over is a much smaller one than male cats who prefer a wider range....and as you would know male cats are prolific scent markers.

As my post said...."some males cats will tolerate others easily" (notably desexed ones) and the same can be said for females...however many well established cats, who have "ruled" over their domain unchallenged will not want to share.

Our big bully male cat...who died some years ago...would not tolerate any other male cats in the vicinity...yet he was very accomodating to most females who wandared in.

Desexing will lessen territorial behaviour in many breeds, but for some it just doesn't.

Aww

I'm sorry to hear that :hug:

As my dog gets older I start to imagine how sad I'm going to be when he dies. It's not fun but I can't help thinking about it. :sad:
