Thank you again to all the Bees who helped us with advice on getting a new cat/introducing that cat to our cat.
We have just adopted a 4 month old male neutered kitten from our local Humane Society. We have named him Finnegan. He is so snuggly, playful, and purrs NON-stop. I have attached a picture but it isn’t great because he wouldn’t sit still Lol

Congrats on the new addition! I highly recommend cat teasers and laser pointers, if you don’t have them already. Wearing our young girl out with those first was the only way we could get a halfway decent picture for a while!

@Miss Apricot: Hahaha. He was so squirmy and just wanted to jump all over FI. He has taken a liking to my FI which makes me happy because our adult cat hates him. Lol

@rcac1208: cutie pie! I didn’t see your other post, but I have experience introducing a new cat. We actually adopted a 4 month old neutered male, so same as you, and introduced him to our 1 year+ spayed female. It took about a week of keeping them separate before they were okay together. Part of the issue with a kitten is that older cats will find them annoying. Also, females are also super territorial. Hope the introductions are going well!

So far things are going just as I expected. Kitten is taking very well to the new place and loves attention. Old cat hisses and growls when she sniffs kitten under the door but does not show signs of real aggression (swatting, charging at the door, etc). We have locked old cat in the bedroom to let kitten wander around the house, and then kitten goes back to his safe room. I know it’s a process that needs patience, but it’s stressful for all of us. I just cried because I had to put kitten in the room and shut the door even tho he cried and meowed. I’m lame. Lol
