Ra is doing much better than last time I posted. Although he has never responded much to it, I dug out the old spray bottle thinking that maybe enough time had passed since he last got a squirt of water in the face. To my great surprise, the spray bottle worked very well as an aversive to his attacks. Between that and redirecting his aggression toward his stuffed animals, his aggression problems are diminishing.

I also think that Ra was using aggression to tell us that he was hungry, so I slightly increased his portions for his three daily meals. That alone has made a tremendous difference in his general demeanor. If he starts getting fat, though, we may have to renegotiate this arrangement.

I sincerely appreciate all of the support and advice I have recieved here. I'm definitely keeping some of your suggestions on the back burner in case I need them. I'm especially pleased to hear that some of you have had success with anti-anxiety medications for cats. I think it is possible that Ra would benefit from medication if his behavior doesn't continue to improve.

Thanks again to all of you!

Heather
