Remember Your Beloved Pet
my cat is jealous????
toriree posted:
I have been spending a lot of time lately outdoors and the indoor cat seems to be very jealous of the outdoor cat. I am not sure if she is showing real jealousy or if she is trying to re-establish heirachy after the matriarch died a couple weeks ago.
She tried to bite him (outdoor cat) when he got up on my bed. More than one time and it was rather serious. He left, but I wasn't happy with her at all! Before today I never noticed this behavior.
I have been trying to spend quality time with all of them, but sometimes it works out that one gets more attention than the others.
Is she just jealous, or is there some other issues at work here?
