    my two have been keeping their WFH mum amused, apparently they are great entertainment during video calls.

    either that or as soon as a video conference starts, they immediately wake up and start howling from the other room, usually with a toy in their mouth :lol:

    Not my cat but my brothers kitty Ally. She's a funny little cat. Her fur is so soft and lovely compared to my dogs and she has this hilarious little stub of a tail. He adopted her from the cats home so is apparently a Manx but who really knows lol

    She loves boxes and plastic bags and the thing I like best about her is this funny little bum wiggle she does before pouncing on something.

    Personally I'm a dog person and very uncomfortable around cats thanks to bad childhood experiences with my grans pretty much feral cats but i am getting better with them hanging around Ally as she's so sweet

    Still don't think I can see myself owning a cat though :lol:

    Anyone know a trick or two to stop one grown male cat stalking and attacking another kitty (much younger harmless female who sleeps most of the day) in a non-playful violent aggressive way? :(

    All cats are inside, and aren't allowed outside unsupervised.

    i think you are stuck with this. This is a dominance and territory thing.

    How much stimulation do they get? Cat wheel? toys? wands?
    If he's a natural stalker, then you'll need to get something he can stalk instead of her.

    Maybe one of those ball in a tunnel systems? One of those motorised butterfly toys?

    From watching Jackson Galaxy. It seems like you have to break the stalker-prey dynamic using various methods.

    A big part of that is having to make changes for the smaller cat so that she doesn't ACT like prey. Alternative pathways. Safe sleeping spots with escape paths. Minimise places she can get cornered. Get them accustomed to playing together with you and a toy (so the male cat starts to see the female cat in situ as a likeminded peer rather than a prey).

    These are just a few ideas. I recommend watching Galaxy's "My Cat From Hell" series to absorb all sorts of cat behaviour and conflict tricks. He solves similar problems on a regular basis.

    (dare I mention a water pistol or spray bottle, for cutting off or breaking up acute instances - a non-hurtful and immediate physical "stop it!" - once they know what it is, you pretty much just have to shake it in their general direction and they get the message)

    You could try some Feliway pheromones, one diffuser will last approximately 1 month. You could also try some rescue remedy in their water, we have used both in the rescue when trying to settle new cats into a foster home.

    I have just started using CBD with my dogs so that might also be an option but I would try the others first along with some of the other suggestions like Shredder has suggested above

    Linkin Nala is looking porky, like our Archer has also been getting lately. Needs a gym membership.
