​Help: My Cat is Being Bullied by My Neighbours Cat!

Posted by

If your neighbours cat is attacking or bullying your cat, there could be a couple of reasons as to why. Take a look below at our preventative measures for your cats to live harmoniously.

Why is Another Cat Bullying My Cat?

  • Usually after first meeting cats will decide whether to be friends or avoid each other 
  • However some cats choose not to ignore the other one even though this suits both cats 
  • More adventurous cats may be targeted, for entering a neighbouring territory 
  • Middle aged cats are more likely to be a victim/bully

For more details on aggression in cats, including who out of you or your neighbour should foot the vet bills should a cat become injured, check out this article by our friends at icatcare. 

Neighbour goals! Pictured are two neighbouring gardens that both have ProtectaPet Cat Fence Barriers. You can see that the cat climbing is trying to enter the adjacent house but cannot due to the design of the barriers.

Signs Your Cat is Being Bullied

  •  Injuries on your cat 
  •  Skin irritations 
  •  Eye infections 
  •  Sneezing and coughing 
  •  Lameness 
  •  Spraying in the home 
  •  Reluctance to go outside 

Solutions for Bullied Cats

  • A Feliway Classic Diffuser in the home can promote relaxation and comfort.
  • Discuss with your neighbour to let them know what is happening and how you can work together to avoid future problems 
  • Install a secure entry cat flap to prevent other cats from gaining entry to your home 
  • Create a stimulating garden to encourage your cat to stay within the boundaries of your property 
  • Neuter your pet to help stop their desire to wander off in order to find a mate 
  • Always have your cat microchipped and wearing a suitable safety collar

The only 100% guaranteed method to avoid fights with neighbouring cats is to construct or have installed a cat containment system.

For cat owners with suitable pre-existing fences or walls, our fencetop barrier is the easiest and quickest method to convert your entire garden into a cat haven.
