Here’s the home-seeking kitten again.As you can see, she’s a peaceful, bookish kitty. Is this why she is being bullied by that beastly tomcat, who we think might be its father? Can someone who knows cats please tell me how to handle this? Although she’s a very tame cat, she has been fending for herself for at least a month now and she does not like to be cooped up. But every time I let her out into the garden, Tomcat the assassin pounces on her and tries to kill her. We run out shouting and have so far managed to rescue her before any serious harm has been done. But what if we’re not around when she needs help? How do I scare off the tom for good, and how do I keep the kitty safe?
