This is totally normal, he is just getting used to the new kitten–they will warm up to each other-it sounds like he’s trying to play but the kitten isn’t down for it yet
Nothing to worry about
I think that’s normal behaviour. When I brought home Grizzly as a kitten, Felix did the same thing, he was smellig him, checking him out, and Grizzly didnt like it one bit… eventually they got to know each other and now they play, fight and snooze together lol
I wanna see pics of kitty!! :p
This is completely fine. The older cat is trying to play. Our cats had a hard time adjusting to eachother. The older one kept charging the new one and scaring her. It took about 6 months for them to get along.
Lol! Is what normal? The bopping? I’m laughing so hard that’s so cute! I would think little kitty will get over himself soon enough but he’s in a brand new home away from his brothers and sisters for the first time. I’d bemore concerned if resident kitty was angry which he doesn’t seem to be so that’s good! And tell your fiancé not to sleep on the bathroom floor lol. Of you out a ticking clock or soft music in there that should help with the lonely 🙂 oh and you should post a pic of the new baby!
This is our new baby. We are thinking of calling him Griffin after the animal in greek mythology that is part bird part lion. He thinks he is a parrot and loves to be on shoulders. He will climb up there and fall fast asleep.
That sounds very normal to me. We got a new kitten almost a year ago, and it took them a lot longer than that to get to that level of calm. They still tussle and run around the house making a huge fuss sometimes, but it’s pretty clearly playfighting, no one gets hurt.
Edit: oh, super cute!! I wanted a black kitty so bad!
And this is our resident kitty, Ender.
You guys are making me feel so much better. Ender is our first kitty and we have never introduced another kitten so I just wasn’t sure if we needed to seperate them again since the kitten was getting annoyed. We aren’t leaving them unsupervised yet, but when should we?
@yram19: Aw, Ender looks like a sweetheart. We kept ours separate for quite a while just because our little girl had been spayed and we didn’t want either of them kicking at the stitches in her belly. I think as much supervised interaction as you can at first would be good, but if they don’t seem like they’re going to do each other any harm- which sounds like the case, you said the claws didn’t come out?- then I’d say it’s really down to your comfort level.
Maybe try a co-mingled play time with a feather or some string so you can distract resident cat when he seems like he’s wanting to play with little fella
AWWW is Ender named after the Ender in “Ender’s Game”? If so, you are the coolest ever! 🙂
@StuporDuck: Great idea, thanks! I started playing with them together and the baby stole the toy. 🙂 Ender let him have it though and just watched. After I played with them together they started to play chase with each other a little and the kitten didn’t hiss or seem upset. Progress. Yay!
