Patsy needs to be spayed ASAP if she is not already. Also keeping her indoors would help quite a bit.

I had a very aggressive female once - she was loving towards me but hated other animals with a passion and would turn on me if she saw one. This is re-directed aggression. This can be highly dangerous for any human who is in the path.

Since Patsy has killed another cat, you really should consider medication also. There are forms or antianxiety meds that can really help. Take Patsy to a vet and discuss her aggression and possible solutions. An animal behaviorist might help in this area.

I don't want to alarm you, but cats rarely kill one of their own kind. This is a real red flag. I have read accounts of where cats can turn on their humans and literally have to be killed on the spot because they are so dangerous that there is no other recourse. If you can stop this behavior now you are better off.

Good luck!
