A. You first need to treat the wounds and follow directions as given by your vet with regards to wound care and treatments. It is important also to socialize the two cats to prevent this from happening, there are pheromone products and food supplements containing b vitamins and tryptophan which may help. Provide plenty of quiet places for the cats to spend time away from each other and two sets of food and water bowls in separate rooms so that neither cat can defend access from the other cat.
