Cats will fight to defend what they believe to be “their” territory, but this often overlaps with what another cat believes is “their” territory! Cats mark their territory using pheromones, and any overlapping areas will be up for dispute.

Why is my neighbor’s Cat fighting with my Cat?

Bring your cat indoors. Fighting with other animals is one of the top 5 of good reasons why cats should be indoors for their own health and safety. Being run over by cars is another one. Your neighbor’s cat feels your cat is invading his territory and is being aggressive about it.

Why do male cats fight with other male cats?

They usually fight with other tomcats to bag the right of mating first. Many a time, super-fecundation takes place which means that multiple male cats father kittens of one female cat. Neutering tomcats decreases their need to roam around, which reduces their chances of becoming victims of various accidents.

How can I Stop my male cat from fighting over his territory?

Both male and female cats may defend their territory against an intruder. The size of the territory can be as small as a single room or yard, or as big as a neighborhood or a block. Spaying or neutering will make your cat feel more relaxed and docile, thus reducing its activity levels and chances of fighting.

Why do intact cats fight with one another?

Cats don’t usually severely injure one another this way, but you should always check for puncture wounds which are prone to infection. Intact males are much more likely to fight in this way than are neutered males. Defensive aggression occurs when a cat is attempting to protect himself from an attack he believes he cannot escape.

How did my cats get in a fight?

My two got into a fight recently with the neighbour’s cats – all six of them had circled upon the two of them. The girl had a scratch on her nose and a sore behind and her brother had a sore behind and bleeding toe and wouldn’t stop crawling along on his tummy (when I found him I thought he may have been run over).

Can a non-neutered male cat be a problem?

A non-neutered male cat, or tomcat, can be a problem, especially if he is wild and lives on or near your property. The pungent odor of his urine spray is particularly annoying and, if it’s quite strong, even can drive down the property’s value. A tomcat, like all male felines, sprays urine to mark his territory and to leave messages for other cats.

Can a neutered Tom Cat still be aggressive?

Neutered tom cats don’t produce the hormones that can lead to aggressive behavior, but there are other explanations. DEAR JOAN: Is there any way to reduce the amount of male hormones in a castrated cat? Spiffy wants to go outdoors but he gets into fights and is injured.
