    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have a male cat that I got from a box outside of a Walmart store 5 years ago, he was very vocal and shy. We had him neutered and declawed as he was tearing up my mothers furniture at the time. Three years ago we rescued another male that was already neutered but not declawed. I decided not to get him declawed as I really regretted getting the first one done after I found out how it is done. The second cat (Bandit) is very aggressive and territorial towards the older cat (Salem) and often will attack him or try to intimidate him by running after him. I am worried that Bandit will end up hurting Salem even though the aggresive behavior is not constant and I try to head it off when it happens. I don't want Salem living in fear as he seems to not want to eat unless someone is in with him.
