Most cats won't attack a kitten unless it is old enough to mate and is not fixed. To begin the introduction, be sure you are sitting on the floor with the kitten on your lap and then invite your older cat to join you. Feed the two about two feet apart then slowly close the gap. If these things don't work, try keeping them in separating rooms and swap out things they lay on or play with daily. Then try the close introduction again. Keep doing this, and they will be fine.
My eight-year-old Siamese cat attacks and chases my two kittens. They are all females. The older one is fixed, but she searches for the kittens and attacks them. They all have own litter, food, and water, and my older cat likes only my room as it's her safe place. How can I get my cats to get along? My kittens are scared to death of my older cat.
I have an older female cat 1.5 years and a 7 month-old female cat. The older cat acts motherly and the two are not often far apart from one another. They play fight and never hear a screech from them; however, when the younger female gains dominance in their play fights she is biting down too hard on the head of the older female. We keep finding the older cat with gashes on the top of her head. This has not changed the behavior of either cat. What can I do?
How do you introduce a kitten to an older cat? Someone gave me a three-month-old kitten, and I have no idea how to help them get along with each other. I have four other older cats in my house as well. We are trying to get them to smell the new kitty, but we are too afraid that it will be too overwhelming for the new kitty, or that the other kitties would start hissing, etc. at her.
I have a one-year-old male cat named Hector. Recently, I found a lonely female kitten across the street, and took her in. Hector has been so jealous. He hisses at the kitten, bully her sometimes when am not around also. I try to bring them together and play with them, but Hector keeps hissing, not friendly at all! I’m scared! What should I do to make Hector like the new kitten?
