I think this is normal?? Older cat is a two year old male Maine Coon, new kitten is small moggy. Kitten is not fazed at all by large hissing tabby - she runs after him, he hisses and growls at her and runs away. I am shutting her in the kitchen tonight with her food, litter tray and comfy bed in travel box, which she seems to like, but how long will it take before I no longer have to invigilate Cat Wars?
Ive got 2 older cats and 2 kittens, one of the older cats took to the kittens immediately, the other hissed at them and was not impressed.
It has taken about 4 months, now the older cat tolerates the kittens with the odd hiss. The kittens have also learnt to leave her alone. They all sleep at the top of the stairs together now. I have even seen the kittens right next to her sleeping and she gives them a rare lick on the head!
