Aggressive bitting kitty

    Two months ago, we adopted a male kitty who is 4 yrs old, 17 pounds, and fixed. He is our fifth adopted kitty. We have two other males (5 and 4.5 yrs old) and two females (6 and 3 yrs old) – all fixed. The first month-and-a-half, everything was fine. However, he has recently (about two weeks ago) taken to mounting and holding the two other males, who are smaller, to the floor. We just figured this was establishing who’s who in the zoo. His behavior is getting more aggressive and last night he bit one of the other males to the point of bleeding. We listen to The Pet Show from time to time and follow Warren’s introductions and recommendations for acclimation as best we can. Nothing has changed in the household that we can determine. We have never had any other problems with any of our rescue kitties and we’re heart broken at the thought of giving him back, but we can’t have injured kitties. Does anyone have any suggestions?
