Quick Update:

Things are not going well. Ra's agression problem is not improving at all. In fact, it seems like he is getting worse every day.

Tonight my husband and I had a very upsetting discussion about our cat's problems. We both agree that we can no longer continue to deal with his constant biting and scratching. Something drastic must be done. We discussed three options: (1) getting rid of our cat; (2) having him declawed; and (3) consulting with an animal behaviorist.

Getting rid of him seems unbearable for both of us because we love him very much. We also know that a cat with such aggression problems would have a difficult time finding a home and he would likely be euthanized. Declawing is a procedure that I have always been against. The idea of doing that to my cat makes me nauseous. As for the third option, I don't know how to find someone in my area qualified to help us. I'm also concerned about the financial costs of consulting with a "pet therapist". And finally, I don't know what advice a specialist could give us that we haven't already tried.

I have no idea what to do. Please help me.
