My husband and I recently moved into a new home and we brought along an abandoned cat named Wolfie from our old neighborhood. He used to mostly live outside, but now he is indoor only. He's really loving the indoor life and is a very sweet cat, most of the time. However, we have two other cats. Sasha a female and Titan a male. Wolfie and Titan get along for the most part. Titan will get annoyed with him sometimes, but Wolfie respects him. Sasha on the other hand just gets tormented by Wolfie. He'll chase her anytime he sees her. He'll stand at the top of the stairs, or in doorways and not let her pass. He chases her up the stairs daily until she turns around and hisses at him and then one of us usually goes up to save her. She is a very nervous cat and always has been, but this is just making her life hell.
   
Is there anything we can do help them to get along? We've heard of those wall plug-ins and colars that emmit a stress reducing pheromone, but I'm a bit skeptical of that stuff. Please, we'll try anything at this point!

I don't know if you are still having problems. I am new to this site. Your problem sounds so much like mine. I have two older resident cats, one female and one male. I brought in two separate strays, both female. I have been having problems with the resident male and new female not getting along. You did not mention any spraying. You are lucky. My male started spraying because of the new strays. I have spent the last five months cleaning, and trying many things. I feel for you. The calming collars did not work for my cats. I currently am using the Feliway diffusers in my downstairs area and playing a CD when I am at work that is supposed to calm the cats. I also am using a calming composure liquid to try to mellow them out. I did read on this site to put each cat in a cat carrier and put them about three feet apart for a half hour and keep doing this until they are inches apart to see if that helps. I am going to try this and you may want to also to see if it helps. Browse this site, it seems like it has some very useful advice. Hope I've helped you.
