I love my cats so much. We have had BB for 3 years. CC became a member of our family last summer. She is a beautiful cat with a raccoon tail and a mixture of long and short hair.

Well, she keeps jumping on BBs back and biting her neck. This is mostly in the mornings. It is to the point that I have to lock her up every time she is in that mood. We have gotten her spayed hoping she would calm down.

Any ideas how to stop her? I would hate to have to get rid of one of them.

I think you might have hit on a solution there....if it mainly happens in the morning, I'd keep them separated during that period - break the habit.

Maybe you can create a new habit in it's place...a few minutes of separate cuddle time or treats...just get the brain following a different pattern in the mornings.

is BB a kitten or a very young adult?
could just be play fighting

I think unless CC is being hurt let it play out for a bit
maybe CC will get mad enough and put your new kitty in her place

I guess I don't know on limited info

Is CC an old cat
does CC get hurt or cry?

I guess i am wondering if one is trying to prove who is the Alpha Kitty
and until they have it straight it may continue

I adopt a lot of doggies and we have the same issue everytime someone new comes to visit they are just trying to figure out the pecking order

BB is 3 years old.
CC is almost 1.

CC jumps on BBs back and bites her neck.
BB must not fight back because she has scabs on her neck or I notice she suddenly has a patch of fur missing. It seems like BB can't walk around the house most of the time without CC stalking her.

If CC turns out to be the alpha cat I wonder if she will eventually leave BB alone?
