Hers work together OK, though I gather sometimes it can take a bit of shuffling based on who gets along with who. But she's an experienced cat person--I was exaggerating a bit.
All of hers have basically been strays adopted (and fixed) at various stages of their lives with various behavior difficulties and rehomed if possible (the kittens generally just take a little time to bring them around, but the older ones aren't as flexible.)
I know she had one who was "tame" enough to manage to sit on the arm of the couch next to you and even let you touch her and pet her, on HER terms, of course. But you didn't want to catch her eye when she was THAT close, or she would attack. I don't mean the classic don't stare at the cat, of course, many don't like that. This one would grace you with her presence, but it was always, "don't look at her" She was on the edge of being a feral cat but had some special needs which meant she couldn't quite be left as one.
And another had some hormone thing going on that they couldn't quite get a handle on which affected his behavior.
And then often there is one who is getting senile...
Seems like there is always someone who needs a bit of special attention.
