Asking for my sister: Her sweet cat is being obsessively stalked by the neighbor's crazy unstable cat. What can she do to curb this?
The cats in question are here.

My sister has a new cat, Sallee. The photo above is how the antics began - with crazy neighbor cat staring Sallee down as she sat inside. Sallee is a few years old and was an outdoor cat before my sister got her, so my sis has started slowly letting her outside. The first time she went out, crazy cat attacked her, so my sister quickly returned her inside.
My sis tried letting her out again a few days later, and crazy cat came after her again, but this time Sallee chased him off. My sis ran after him with a water bottle, but crazy cat just sat there as she sprayed him with water, his eyes locked on Sallee. Then he sat outside the house and yowled as Sallee sat inside.
Aside from talking to the neighbor or keeping Sallee inside, is there anything my sister can do on her end to discourage this behavior? She has the water bottle on hand, but obviously it seems to be ineffective. Both cats are fixed.
