Yes, it's very difficult to deal with, for me and for the other cats. Funny though, Blizzard sometimes seems afraid of other cats. For example, yesterday several of the cats were clustered around the food bowl with 3 or 4 others close by. Bliz wanted to get into the living room, but these cats were in the way. He approached the group and was obviously uncomfortable passing through it, so instead he circled around the dog's crate and into the living room, giving the group of cats a wide berth. This has happened before; it almost appears as if he's intimidated by them, yet he'll walk through the house slapping everybody in his path. I remember my vet telling me about a professor of his in vet school. This professor had a client with 2 cats, one submissive and one very aggressive. She decided to give the aggressive cat an injection of estrogen, and the submissive cat an injection of testosterone. The aggressive cat approached the other one and attacked him as usual, even though he probably wasn't feeling quite like himself due to the estrogen. The submissive cat then beat the heck out of the attacker, and they never had a problem after that!
