You might recognize the behavior of a dominant cat already observing from how it approaches another, that is stiff step, raised ears and raised tail base. When several cats live together it is natural for them to form one hierarchy in which one of them dominates the others, for this very reason it is important that i masters learn to recognize hierarchies to be able to understand certain behaviors and make sure that all felines live happy and healthy.
If a cat has a dominant character you can see it since I was a puppy and it is important discourage him and educate him in time to respect the rules and coexistence. This dominant attitude, in fact, in the future could become a problem both in the presence of other animals and for people. How to understand, therefore, whether a cat or a kitten have a predominant attitude? Well, our feline friends will tend to sticking, snorting, scratching or biting other pets or people, aggressively stealing food and toys from them.
The dominant behavior it is found mainly in non-neutered cats, particularly in non-neutered males: one of the first remedies will therefore be sterilization. This solution will also avoid the marking of the territory, which could incentivize the aggression or intimidation of our friend to defend him from those who think they want to appropriate it.
Most often they are the same owners that, unknowingly, they encourage dominant behavior of their furry friend. If, in fact, you allow the kitten to do what he wants playful behavior may become dominant with you or other animals. For example, when a puppy jumps, bites and scratches our hands or feet or other animals present it may seem like a game, but as an adult it could be a problem as it could hurt us or feel authorized to pull out the nails. It is therefore necessary pay attention to behaviors felines since they were puppies.
Sometimes dominance could arise from jealousy of the cat for the prolonged attention given to other animals in the house or to a newcomer, so try to give the same amount of stroking to each of them every day. Also meals they are important to observe the behavior of our friends: give a bowl of food for each cat so as not to develop a sense of superiority over others.
Observe, therefore, that they are not there dominant behaviors over food such as, for example, rejecting another cat or not allowing it to approach the bowl: in these cases it may be necessary to feed the cats at different times or in different places in the house. In order not to make any of them feel "privileged" compared to the other cats present, it is therefore advisable to promote harmony among them distributing caresses and litter boxes, kennels, bowls and so on in an appropriate way inside the house so that no one feels cheated of anything.
Many people are tempted to physically punish their furry friend when showing aggressive behavior, however this would only cause fear in the animal and would accentuate the problem. Furthermore, the cat would not understand the reason for the punishment and would begin to see you as an enemy. So, if you notice that this type of behavior repeats itself over time, isolate him from others and take him to a quiet place so that he can calm down. If you can't handle it, however, you should consult yours veterinarian, so that a physical cause can be ruled out, and a behaviorist to evaluate any psychological causes.
