Well… we have some issues with our cats…
we have a male and a female.
The female cat was my DH’s for about 3 years and when we marred of course she would live with us.
We moved and suddenly a cute male wild(?) cat appeared (this would be our second cat) it was about 6-7months old apparently.
We adopted him and named him Cahuac, he’s super sweet and loves us… but he has some issues, we would want us to pet him but run away from us at the same time, he’s very talkative (we like that, unless he’s being super annoying) and the thing i find the most problematic… he eats A LOT (or would, if i let him) he could keep eating until he gets all bloated and even then he would keep eating. We think he has anxiety about “loosing” his food, he’s fat because of that.
Anyway, i’ve been trying to control his eatin schedule by covering their plates (he would eat his food AND our other cat’s), also putting him in another room so our female cat eats whatever she wants and THEN i feed him for X amount of time… it’s been working well, but apparently he’s being anxious or something, because he wont stop bothering our female cat, Shakty, and she doesnt like him that much as it is, so imagine how she gets when he’s pissing her off.
On the other hand, Shakty thinks she’s a queen and we are her slaves, and will DEMAND chicken or ham, when we dont buy it for about a month, she enters in some kind of “PMS” and depression and she gets UGLY, inside and out.
Lately, we bouth them chicken and they’ve been asking A LOT, we give them their food and Shakty would eat a lot because she wants chicken, Cahuac meoes every two seconds and both of them are driving us crazy.
I started using a water sprinkler on them (and even on our dog is she’s out of control) and it was working well until 2-3 days ago, they are worse than ever, you cant walk near the refrigerator because they will chase you, meow and end up fighting.
We dont know what to do. Any advise?
P.D. Both cats are spayed.
