Help! My cat is too agressive!

I have a 16 month old male cat that can't play without becoming too agressive: he bites or sratches with his back paws. We recently (3 weeks ago) adopted a second cat (1 yr old/male) and they do get along very well together (no hissing/growling). When our original cat is calm, they'll sleep together and groom each other, they really seem to like each other. However, when he is hyper and wants to play, he'll always try to get on top of the new cat and bite him wherever he can. Last night, the old cat scratched our new cat's eye with one of his back paws and we had to make an emergency visit to the vet, his eye was all red and he wouldn't open it. It turns out the damage is superficial but he will be on medication for the next 5 days and still doesn't open his eye too much. So I need help! Is there anything that can be done to lower or stop a cat's agression? I've tried spraying with water, making some loud noises, breaking up the fight.. but nothing seems to help. The cat stops for a few minutes but starts back all over again. Please help!!

Hi, first of all a congrats with your new son!!!  Are your males neutered?  Cats are sooo much more calm if they've been fixed.  That would help soo much.  Also, you can trim the cats nails down to make them a little less damaging.

There is an older post that you should check out, it might help you out-there are a lot of different opinions on it.

Here it is-This post is on page 2 or 3-hope it helps!!!
