How do I get my cat to respect other cats better? How do I get my cat to respect me more and my property?

We're going to need more detail and specifics than that to be able to help you. What's going on?

For starters: (a) lots of kindness, and (b) make him/her a house cat only. Then go on to quality food and clean cold water. Love and respect are mutual. There is no "either/or".

Cats are like people, some get along well, and some don't. It's strictly up to the cats involved whether they will like each other or not. Sometimes the best you can get is peaceful coexistence.
As to respect, I would think it would be much the same as with humans. Treat them as you would want to be treated. Honor their boundaries, give them space when they want it, and above all let them come to you when they're ready. It takes a while to learn about cats, but pay attention to what they're "telling you" and you'll get there.

Respect isn't a given, it has to be earned.
Good luck.

I think it's probably a lot easier to get the cat to respect you better than it is to get a cat to respect another cat better. I think we have little or no control over how cats feel about each other.
