Can 2 female cats get along?

Why are my two cats suddenly fighting?

Your cat’s territorial protection instinct can also be triggered if stray cats are outside and your cats can see or smell them.

Can you have more than one cat at a time?

How are two cats different from one another?

Those differences in personality can have a profound effect on how two cats may get along. An easy-going cat may accept most other cats, while a timid and shy cat may be reluctant to accept another cat, depending on the new cat’s personality. An active and assertive cat may overwhelm quieter and more timid cats, making introductions difficult.

When do cats from opposite sex get along?

Most of the time when a cat has been surrendered to our shelter because two (spayed/neutered) cats that lived together harmoniously for a year or longer – sometimes 5 or 6 years – decide they no longer can, both are females. Some people claim it takes longer to introduce two females, too. Jun 22, 2020. #5.
