It may be that your cat doesn't get along with others so well that you ask yourself: "Should I give up? I have a theory that a cat that hates another cat must be in a situation that may have come from a kitten that has separated from its litter mates at an early age and the lonely cat wants a mate.

This can happen if the cats have been separated for a while and one cat does not recognize the other. This can be stressful for both pets, as the cat is lonely and the new cat must be a stranger. Fortunately, a cat has become accustomed to wade deep into the litter and does not seem to be bothered now, but the cause is not something you want to do. Your cat does not like the SmartCat and would prefer solid clay litter, so physical dominance will break the connection between him and you.
