Aggressive Young Stud Cat
My young male cat now lives out in his heated stud quarters. As I do with all my males he always has female company as I hate the boys to get lonely and would never let them live alone. However, for the last four months he has been very aggressive to any female cat I put near him.
He gets used to each individual girl after a few weeks but until then he terrorises them. He attacks them in a sneaky way and makes a strange territorial yowling noise and lip slapping like you see in feral male cats when they are fighting.
He has shown none of the usual charismatic stud male charm that it takes to win the girls over for mating he is vile.
I am wondering if this is a case of the teenage tantrums and he is simply being mean to the girls because he likes them and knows no other way, or is this just a confidence thing and an extension to his initial timid behaviour?
He is a young Ragdoll who is just approaching a year and 1/2 old. I bought him from a well known traditional Ragdoll breeder in the UK. And when I brought him home he was lovely looking with an amazing pedigree. But he was very timid and nervous of other cats at first.
I must add he is very friendly to me always in exactly the way a Ragdoll cat should be.
Can you suggest a homeopathic remedy or remedies that may help ease his fear, anger, etc that will allow him to enjoy the company of his lady cats and then when the time is right win them over for mating?
