    I have 2 cats, a 4 year old male, and a 4 year old female. The male has always been very affectionate, and the female is affectionate, but scared of almost everything. The two cats have been together since they were kittens and pkay and cuddle together. We recently moved, the male cat was brought to the new hone 2 days before the female cat because the female kept hiding on us at the old house. We finalky have them back together , and the male cat is growling and hissing at the female timid cat, and he won’t let the little girl in our room. This has never happened before, and we have moved them both in the past. What do i do to get hi. To stop his aggressive behavior??

    I have a behavioral issue with my 2 yr old Siamese cats. Recently we have 3 instances when they have been “spooked” (3 separate situations); 2 when walking with us on their harnesses&leashes and 1 when confronted at the window while inside their home. They have become a wildly, frantic ball of fur & claws that we fear losing control of, so we hold and get scratched to pieces. We walk them 2X/day normally and nothing happens, but once a familiar dog raced up to greet us. Another day a neighborhood cat attacked our window from the exterior and sent OUR kitties into a frenzy in which the male bit his sister/litter-mate and took weeks to become comfortable with each other. Most recent incident involved a probable sighting of a fox outdoors, that spooked them when walking later. While RV travelling across the country 4X/year, we also walk them at least once/day and although very careful about the surroundings, have never had any problems with this frenzied behavior.
    Any suggestions?
    Thank you.
