Hi I have an outdoor cat and I have an indoor cat, I love them both dearly... My indoor cat was declawed and I feel bad about that and I wish that I would have never had this done to her, but it's done, and there's nothing I can do about it...My outdoor cat is a little furry critter and she is such a joy to be around, but when I get the two of the cats together there's this jealousy thing... I wouldn't let it bother me so much but the outdoor cat is alot more tougher than the indoor cat, not to mention them sharp claws... Anyways the outdoor cat got hurt Wednesday, I found her Thursday under a bush, she was near dying, her little paw was swollen twice it's size, it was infected and very painful... I immediately took her to the Vet. He took her temp. it was 103, and she had an awful infection.... Somehow her paw got split, I'm not sure if the Vet realized how bad a shape it's in... Anyways he gave her an antibiotic and gave her a shot, but he really didn't give it a good looking over... I feel that he could have checked it out alittle better than that, and I know that I am going to have to take stripes back to him Tuesday after the meds are gone...I just hope that her paw can heal back up, it looks awful...Back to the problem, How can I get the two cats to get along? They are both fighting for me, and I try to show them both love, but that only leads to more jealousy... Any answers to this dilemma?
