Will these 2 cats ever peacefully coexist in my home?
I have 2 new boy kitty brothers from the humane society and a new girl stray cat in my house. I just got the girl about a month ago and already had the boys at that point. The boys play and wrestle and roughhouse with each other a lot. One of the boys also tries to play with the stray girl. She hates it and totally growles and hisses at him. They fight/roughhouse a bit, but it seems to me that he thinks he is just playing but she is actually fighting and has hate in her heart. So now she is very angry and growly whenever he walks into the room. Often she runs away and hides under the bed and growles after one of their interactions. He doesn't seem stressed around her (again I think he just thinks this is how cats interact) but she is now usually stressed whenever he shows up.
I wonder if he will ever learn that she doesn't like to "play" the way his brother does?
I wonder if she will ever learn that he is only trying to play and engage her and doesn't mean to hurt her?
Do you think there is any hope that their relationship will improve and they will learn to get along better?
