  • I have a 2.5 month old kitten right now named Henry a persian cat, and another kitten who is about 1.5 months old right now will be coming in on november 15th. By then Henry will be 3 months old and the new kitten will be around 2 months old. Will it be hard to introduce them to each other because they’re more than a week older than each other? I’m sorry for the newbie question. I’m a new cat lady. I’ve been taking care of dogs my whole life and it’s my first time taking care of a cat and i’m a convert. I’m in love with cats now ❤️

  • When I was introducing my kittens I kept them in a transparent box aka container and kept those containers nearby so they both can see each other but can't touch or harm each other .... They are pretty good friends now:-)

  • I have a 12 week old kitten who's a lovebug and a new 8 week old. I've been trying to introduce them, let them be in different parts of my house, love them both, and older kitty is trying to make friends but younger keeps jumping at her, charging, cuffing. kitty brawl almost happened at my window. It's been 5 days and no progress has really been made. No clue what to do! I've shown them to each other. Everything.

  • We adopted a kitten, she is 4 months old, she was born at our daughters. We've always were dog people but now, my husband and I are in love. Now our daughters cat had blessed her with 3 more babies of which we want to adopted one for a companion to our baby. They will be siblings, different litters, born in a house, been kept in a spare bedroom. My question is do we still need to keep them apart for 14 days, when ever he is ready to come to our house? Thank You, Leslie

They were both wild kittens and Pete was rescued at about 9 weeks and his brother has only just been caught. I'm taking his brother for a week trial, do you have any tips on having them get along and not be jealous about having to share mum's love?

  • Hello all who have knowledge on my issues: So, I have cat allergies. And I REALLY want a cat. The only options are hypoallergenic purebreds, the healthiest is all I care about and how well they will do in my family, but I would need to buy from a breeder if I got Siberians or other hypoallergenic cats. So would it be better to not get any cat? For me, it isn't buy or save, it is buy or don't get a cat. Thanks!

  • I've always kept the new cat in a separate room, let them sniff each other from behind the door, then eventually feed them next to the door. Then I'll set up a huge cage in my spare room (it's the size of half the room) and let them interact that way for a while. Usually 2 months. After that they have always been used to each other, with the occasional hiss

  • I have been fostering a kitten who is now 9 weeks old and I was just given two more kittens to foster who are 6 weeks. They are done quarantining today I tried to introduce them to the 9 week old but he was rather aggressive and immediately tried to start playing but as you can imagine he is much bigger than they are. Should I wait to introduce them? Or do you have any sort of tips? I know the age gap isn't ideal but I don't want to have to send anyone back to the shelter! Any help would be appreciated!

    Alison AustriaAlison Austria4 months ago
    • Probably better closer to an adult introduction. They will most likely adapt faster than an adult cat, but just to be on the safer side

I regret not getting the 2nd kitten from the same litter 10 months ago. It is my first cat and thought it was as easy as it is w dogs. If I would have known, oh well... wish me luck because the resident cat is standing its ground.

  • I have two kittens, one of them who came only a few days ago and the other three weeks ago. The newer only is calm and curious, I can tell she really really wants to play with our other kitten. However, the other kitten who has been with us longer is a huge scaredy cat. We've been trying to follow the instructions but whenever she sees the new kitten, she gets all puffed up. Every now and then she's calm and approaches the new one in a friendly manner, but if the new kitten moves too suddenly, she puffs up again and runs away. What should I do?
