Emma ~ I want to be an only cat
Emma was our third cat. Sunny and Niggy were settled in and happy when Emma arrived … so no territorial concerns as Sunny and Niggy are the gentlest of creatures. Then we found Peanut, for free on the roadside, and since nobody messes with Peanut, everything continued along smoothly. Then we adopted Marble and Brown-Brown. Brown refuses to stay inside for any length of time, but Marble wants to be with us. She adores my DH, and follows him around like a dog. She’s wee and sweet, but Emma hates her. So now I’m living with two cats that I can’t leave alone together, which is like living on a locked ward. One gets shut in the downstairs bathroom if the other one is free. Emma is definitely the aggressor, and Marble is terrified of her. Does this type of situation ever resolve itself amicably? Will it improve over time or will it always be like living through the Shootout at the OK Corral?
