Help. I have two cats--13 years old. For years the black one has been obese whilst the gray one has remained thin. Upon working from home, I was able to observe the reason why: The black one ignores his food bowl when fed and instead pushes his way into the thin cat's bowl. If he can't get at the bowl, he'll whack the bowl with his paw until food flies out and onto the floor. The net result is that he gets half of the thin cat's portion and ALL of his own portion as he returns to his bowl after he's done pilfering from the thin cat.

For half a year, I've taken to feeding them in separate rooms. The thin one in the kitchen, the obese one in the bedroom. That worked great for awhile and the obese one came down to normal weight.

Now, the hoarding cat has grown angry sitting in the bedroom with the door closed while the thin cat finishes his food. So he's taken to defacating on my bed, even if he's only in there 10 minutes total. As a result, I sequestered the hoarding cat in the bathroom while he eats, so if he relieves himself out of spite, it will just be on tile. NOW, the hoarding, sequestered cat, when let out of the bathroom, bides his time and then goes into my bedroom and not only defacates on the bed, but urinates as well.

Is my cat both evil and cunning, in which case I'm scared, or is there something else going on? I apologize for the long story, but I don't want a lot of "diabetes" diagnoses, since I'm nearly certain it's behavioral. Or is defacating also a part of diabetes? But then, why on my bed and not on the bathroom floor or elsewhere? I really feel like it's pure spite. And malice. Honestly, that cat always has to have the last "word."

Oh, and what should I do if it is just pure malevolence?
