Their current target is Wii. Wii, who is Vixey's brother, has been living with us for more than 2 years now, but Cow and Bunny seemed to have targetted him to bully for the past few months so much so that Wii has chosen to live in the back alley and only comes back for meals several times a day in the backyard.
Here's how Wii takes his meals every day. He only feels safe perching on this narrow platform with me standing guard beside him.
And without fail, Cow and Bunny would know Wii is eating, and wherever they may be, they would come into the kitchen and stalk him out. I have to close the sliding windows to prevent them from coming out to chase poor Wii away.
Bunny stalking Wii.
That's Cow waiting to pounce on poor Wii.
Cow and Bunny used to bully Cleo, their niece, but Cleo, being a Calico queen, fought back, and earned her place in the house, with a little help from my husband, who would protect her from the two bullies.
They used to bully Tiger as well, but acupuncture miraculously turned Tiger into a confident cat, and he is no longer afraid of Cow and Bunny now.
If you have a cat manual, and you have any suggestions to help Wii gain some confidence, please do share. I'm already at my wit's end trying to help him.
I've asked a vet, and he says he has seen some cats starve to death when they live in a colony. The alphas are just so intimidating that the timid cats dare not even eat!
Strangely, the two bully-alphas have spared Indy.
Sigh...it must be affinity?
