Tape some canvas around Polly's front paws or any material that will stop the claws from extending. Put a cat mussle on her and let her interact. You just need to give the other cats some confidence. They will see the limited ability and start to push back and assert themselves. Equalize the bullying and the -- should stop. Otherwise I think Fae is onto something when he said shave a stripe into each cat. Anything that gets the brain to another place should help. The catnip strat is also good. You mentioned she likes to go after you when you withhold the good stuff. This places the aggression on you and might help the interaction because the other cats aren't withholding anything.
Okay, things are strange today.
I took this yesterday and I was very happy at the time to see Jackie not reacting or running away. It's pretty funny to see Polly get confused when she doesn't run away:
Today, Jackie and Animal are fighting, Polly doesn't care. Earlier, Jackie was dominating Polly. I'm really confused so I have them locking in separate rooms and I'm going to go relax somewhere.
Right now Polly is living either on top of the dryer in the laundry room or behind a mirror in my bedroom. I am worried about this because Polly owned this house previously and she was pretty happy. She wouldn't get in the bed last night either, just hid behind the mirror. She did wake me up when my alarm went off this morning like usual, but went back behind the mirror.
Denial — Those other cats aren't here"I feel fine."; "This can't be happening, not to me."
Denial is usually only a temporary defense for the individual. This feeling is generally replaced with heightened awareness of possessions and individuals that will be left behind after death integration . Denial can be conscious or unconscious refusal to accept facts, information, or the reality of the situation. Denial is a defense mechanism and some people can become locked in this stage.
Anger — i'm going to show them who's boss"Why me? It's not fair!"; "How can this happen to me?"; '"Who is to blame?"
Once in the second stage, the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue. Because of anger, the person is very difficult to care for due to misplaced feelings of rage and envy. Anger can manifest itself in different ways. People can be angry with themselves, or with others, and especially those who are close to them. It is important to remain detached and nonjudgmental when dealing with a person experiencing anger from grief.
Bargaining — please run away to confirm my superiority over you "I'll do anything for a few more years."; "I will give my life savings if..."
The third stage involves the hope that the individual can somehow postpone or delay death. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made with a higher power in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. Psychologically, the individual is saying, "I understand I will die, but if I could just do something to buy more time..." People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek to negotiate a compromise. For example "Can we still be friends?.." when facing a break-up. Bargaining rarely provides a sustainable solution, especially if it's a matter of life or death.
Depression - Polly is here — "I'm so sad, why bother with anything?"; "I'm going to die soon so what's the point?"; "I miss my loved one, why go on?"
During the fourth stage, the dyingintegrated personcat begins to understand the certainty of deathintegration. Because of this, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time crying and grieving, or hide on top of the clothes washer. This process allows the dying person displaced feline to disconnect from things of love and affection. It is not recommended to attempt to cheer up an individual who is in this stage. It is an important time for grieving that must be processed. Depression could be referred to as the dress rehearsal for the 'aftermath'. It is a kind of acceptance with emotional attachment. It's natural to feel sadness, regret, fear, and uncertainty when going through this stage. Feeling those emotions shows that the person has begun to accept the situation.
Acceptance — I don't have a choice but to co-exist"It's going to be okay."; "I can't fight it, I may as well prepare for it."
In this last stage, individuals begin to come to terms with their mortality, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event. This stage varies according to the person's situation. People dying can enter this stage a long time before the people they leave behind, who must pass through their own individual stages of dealing with the grief.
