My two cats who have been together a couple of weeks now (before that Stewie used to live in the porch), don't get on very well. They tolerate each other just about, but Stewie seems to bully Artie sometimes, like taking a swipe at him as he passes. Now Artie seems afraid of Stewie. He jumps up on furniture to get passed rather than getting close. Stewie has a habit of sleeping in doorways and Artie can't get passed. I do like to give each cat equal attention but Stewie likes to play fight with my arm. It doesn't hurt most of the time, but I do get covered in scratches. Artie may look at me with distain (he is good at that!) when I stroke Stewie, but he doesn't normally react otherwise. In the last week there has been two instances where I have had Stewie grasp me a bit too hard which has made me say "argh" out loud. On both occasions Artie has then attacked Stewie, the first time there was a full on cat fight, with chunks of fur everywhere. It's almost like Artie is protecting me. I know dogs can be like that with their owners, but can cats??
