I just wondered if anyone had any advice. I have a cat who is 20 months old. He is a very loving, calm cat and likes nothing more than to be cuddled in the warm. He has never scratched us or bit or anything like that. The problem is, he is scared to go out, because another cat keeps picking on him. This other cat is a big cat, and he sleeps in the shed at the end of the garden, i have caught him trying to bite our cat before, and shooed him off lots of times. He is very intimidating, as he sits on the shed roof staring at me and the cat. He isnt scared of me at all!
The last few months i noticed our cat was coming in, with cuts and limps etc, but he still wanted to go out in the evenings. But for about the last month, he is petrified to go outside. He sits on the doorstep for about 10 mins checking about, then if it's clear he will sneak under the chair, look around for another 10 mins then if its clear again he quickly does he toilet then runs back inside, This is only if i am there. If i stay indoors he wont even go out. At the moment he has 2 big gashes on his head, and he is definitly not the fighting type and it upsets me so much to think he is getting bullied, But because he is not going out, he messes in the house during the night whilst we are all in bed. What should i do and what should i do about the other 'bully' cat? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
