Grumpy boy cat
by Codie alley
My 7 month old male cat has been an "only child" since we got him at 11 weeks, we have spoilt him rotten. We have just brought a 7week old female kitten, at first he hissed and growled at her and swatted her on the head, it's been a few days now and they are slowly gettin better. But he is now biting her on the tummy and neck while tackling her, is this playing or should I be concerned? Please if you have any advice on how to introduce them properly it would be greatly appreciated.
well it sounds to me like play but you can't be sure.
Is your male cat neutered? If not then I would definitely recommend that you have him done now to prevent any possible aggressive behavior from him.
As for introducing cats to each other well all cats are different to hoe they react to each other and some cats are better at accepting another cat to their territory.
There is a way to introduce cats to each other but it does take some time and effort and there are no guarantees that they will get along.
hopefully though your cats are young enough to learn to live with each other in harmony.
here is more information about the introduction process.http://www.our-happy-cat.com/introducing-cats.html
