Haruyou:  My mom has the same type of mean old lady cat.  Honestly, I wouldn’t introduce them.  Old cats do not “just get use to new cats” in a few days.  She could really hurt your kitty.  I’d try to keep them separate as much as possible.

By The Way, what prompted them to diagnose your kitty with autism? I didn’t even know there was such a thing.

Haruyou:  I would say that it’d be best to keep your kitty in a separate room for a while.  The older cat will be able able to smell your cat thru the door and maybe she’ll get used to his scent that way.  I wouldn’t lock the older cat up in a room, as it is her house.  If you want to eventually try to introduce them, I would start by feeding both cats on each side of the door.  Older kitty will associate the new cat scent with something pleasant (food) and if they seem ok after a while, introduced them in the same room.  Don’t force them to meet and keep watch over them in case older kitty tries to attack.  I wouldn’t leave them alone together until you know for sure they won’t hurt each other.

This is how we introduced a new male kitten to our 2 adult females cats.  After about 2 weeks, one of the adults was fine with him…it took about a month for the other adult to get used to him.
