Pip is still harassing the cats - she has started doing this thing, where, instead of just chasing them, she grabs them by the loose skin on their cheek/ neck and runs with them.
I have tried putting her on a lead, but while she is leashed, she doesn't chase them, so I have nothing to correct her for. When she ignores the cats, I praise and treat, if she chases them or mouths at them, I use a squirter bottle (hard not to get the cats with this, so it's a bit of a problem). It just doesn't seem to make any impact on her.
Last night, I discovered a bald patch on the back of one of the cats ears. I'm treating it as ringworm, with anti fungal cream, but it may be from stress, or even from her biting him - doesn't look like ringworm to me. The other cat, the smaller one, she pushes over if she catches her. So far the cats have been very tolerant, as in the run away, but I wouldn't be suprised if they give her a good clobbering - she corners them or blocks them from escaping through the kitty door.
She is also chewing everything. I give her chew toys, kongs, treat dispensing toys - she destroys soft toys and eats squeakers, she eats the soft plastic type of squeaky toy. She finds blocks of wood in the garden and eats those.
Today, she ate my mobile phone. She has also eaten several shoes and a bra.
Help me, before I strangle her!!!
