Cat Introduction To New Kitten


What is the best way to introduce a new kitten(4months old) to two older cats(3 1/2yrs old and 8yrs old)?

Hi, Tiffany,

Congratulations on the new addition to your family. Your kitten is young enough that you should have very little problem introducing the kitten to your two older cats.

The most important thing is to gradually introduce them, never leaving them unsupervised, until you are positive the older ones will not hurt the kitten.

A good way to begin is to put the kitten in a room with its own litter and food and water so the cats are all able to sniff each other under the door.

Don't be surprised if there are a few hisses. Eventually that will stop and you can try to crack the door and let them come nose to nose with each other.

When that appears to be acceptable to all, then you can try having them all together in the same room, but with your supervision.

The above steps can take 1 day or a week or more. The younger the cat, the quicker the adjustment.

Good Luck and Enjoy!

Dr. Neely
