No, I was wondering since the cat probably knows to stay away from them for the same reasons. Maybe they'll be the first to get along?

Good points! Maybe a couple of cats would work well together!

It all depends on how far you want to carry this theory. Cats just dont normally associate with other cats in the wild. They have been doing it all their life in various different situations so they know how to deal with other cats. In the wild there are certn predators that will steal one of the females kittens from the other female. If two females get pregnant at the same time, well that has been known to happen to a lot of wild cat species and it can be a real problem. If this was happening I can see why they would be wary of each other.

Of course you could argue it could be part of an experiment. You could try to trn them to work together on getting food, and see if they can work together without actually fighting. That would be a first. You might just get results like this. Maybe they would even form their own pride. You would never see this pr together because the one female would probably just eat the young of the other female. They would never know they were related.

If it is an experiment, and the cats have been brought in together, you will probably find that the cats can at least get along if they are fed and taken care of. They will probably get over their fears and their instincts and form a good relationship over time. However, they might never become friends. There is a high chance that one of them will kill the other one in the end. Cats have been known to kill each other in some cases because they are in a fight to the death situation. One male will probably try to kill the female. She will try to kill him. After some time they will go their separate ways.

Of course it can be argued that they are related so they have been brought in together. But the fact remns that they are still related. When they live together in the house it is natural to have a friendly relationship between them. It is just a matter of time before that time passes.

I couldnt help but notice this article. Cats have definitely been put into different groups in zoos and they have shown their behavior differences between the groups. This shouldnt be cause for concern. This could be the reason why so many different species of cats exist. As with all animals in a group, if there is an alpha male, then the others may follow his lead and be careful when near him. Even if the cats are kept as friends in a zoo, they will still have to be separated during breeding time or any other time that is considered aggressive. Cats have just as much of a family as dogs and other species and they are related.

I agree that they could be related and perhaps have some sort of bond. But in this case it could be that the male cat was very dominant and would have a hard time taking orders from another cat. This cat will need to be placed with a dominant male in the future, because he will need to find a way to let the males know that he's the alpha.

A cat can always be trned, he is very intelligent. The reason cats have trouble being social is that they feel like they are above everything and therefore don't want to socialize with anything but the human they are currently in relationship with. It's as simple as the more intelligent a species, the less social they become. All animals are social and socialize with each other, even if it's just a cat and a mouse.

I think it's interesting that in almost every species, in the wild, there is always at least two males in a group. It could be a group of males that just naturally has a dominant member who gets in fights with other males. Or it could be a group of males that have formed a bond with each other.

It's interesting how a young male may act towards his mother. Even when they are in the same room, the younger one may be curious, but afrd of his mom's response to him. They are really just mimicking what they see in the other species, except in this case, they are trying to imitate something their mother does with them. They are afrd to touch her even if she's standing right in front of them. The cat who was dominating him probably did something that scared him, so he did the same thing, and the cycle goes on. He would rather not have anything to do with other males, and that's how he acts.

One of the things I find that gets cats so worked up is that they are really territorial, and that's why you have to be so careful about touching them. Some of them will react to someone standing right next to them with clawing. You have to be careful because if you touch them and their claws come out, you could get a severe injury. Cats that are rsed as kittens normally will grow out of that stage, but if they are rsed by wildcats or feral cats, or a cat who is not the mother, they don't learn what is a safe zone and what is a dangerous zone for them. So the younger cats are more likely to act out and fight more than the older cats. The older cats learn how to behave, so even if they are living in a group of cats, they don't have to bother with that whole territory thing.
