Cat becomes aggressive around other cats
Luna at two months
I have an 11 month old indoor female cat (Himalayan ), which may be pregnant. This is another problem on its own. She was seen outside several times mating without my knowing that she was outside, during one heat cycle.
I have several questions:
1. My cat Luna is a very active cat and gets bored very easily. She was separated from her mother since she was young (probably less than one month).
I got her from a guy when she was one-and-a-half months old. Because of that, she is not used to being with other cats, and gets thrilled when she sees a cat outside through the window. Because of that, she always tries to go outside and chase them.
You might think that that it's easy getting rid of the other cat and poof, but not for me in my village. There are tons of cats/cat families.
Some are my neighbor's, some are strays, and some are our rescued cats, which are living completely fine, they have shelters, food, and they are taken care of, so I can't get rid of them.
Every time I want to walk my cat outside, these cats are everywhere, so she runs a away from me (including the leash and harness) and chases them even if the cats are not showing any hints of aggression and competition.
After I quiet them down by raising my voice and waving my arms, I try to take my cat indoors again, not wanting this to continue.
She attacks my hand and attempts to wiggle out of my arms. By now she may seem
like an aggressive cat, but she's not.
She's actually very playful and affectionate around me and acts as a normal cat, but as I told you she changes 180 after spotting a cat.
What I really want is Luna to be comfortable around cats or at least not rage, especially around my outdoor cat, which is rescued and lives in my backyard and has two babies.
2. This is my second concern. When I walk Luna outside, she's very scared or worried when I pet her and growls and runs away, because she thinks I'm trying to take her inside again.
I really want her to be comfortable when she's outside with me. I really hate getting hissed/growled at by my cat.
I feel really bad for her, but I know for her safety I can't leave her outside alone, and I really need a solution for this.
3. Third problem. My neighbor and I are really close, like really close. She owns one female cat, and four kittens (three-five months old) who are outdoor cats, but they are really affectionate and playful just like any kittens.
I really want my cat and her kittens to be friends (or at least comfortable, not being enemies), because they always chase each other.
We have attempted to make them meet, but things went wrong, which is really funny. The kittens were more dominant and scared my cat. So I also need a solution for this. :<
All cats are not neutered, and I'm planning to get Luna neutered, but I'm going to have an ultrasound first. Can we neuter a pregnant cat?
