Say hello to my new kitten, RoXy. She’s 7 weeks old. She’s teeny and cute. Elvis hates her.
Anyone having any tips about getting a big cat to not hiss at a new kitten?

    Hey TriXie Congrats on the kitten I love Kittens lol but just let them hiss away at each other eventually the older one will realize that this little one is not leaving and they will stop.  If they start like attacking each other break it up but I have always just let them hiss and they should stop after a week.

    I’ve got one cat I’ve been trying to get rid of for a year.  No one will take her because she is evil.  That and turtles.  I have 2 turtles I need to find a home for.  Anybody who reads this that wants either a ‘box’ or aquatic turtle, let me know.  Or an evil cat.  🙂

    Put each cat behind a closed door and let them sniff at each other underneath the door for a while.  Also I find that giving the older cat some catnip also helps.  Everyone is more friendly when they are high:).

    Congrats on the kitten.  I have my hands full with 5 cats, a bunny, and a beagle puppy.  ….let alone the little kittens that we find starving around our home and take in till we find a family for them.  A few more animals and I will start opening my place as a zoo to the public. 
    Your two family members need to get use to each other.  Having a way where they can see/sniff each other, but not hurt is a start.  It varies on cats.  Some will be hesitant when the little one comes bouncing on it, but won’t hurt it.  …others will hiss and need their own time to sniff and get use to the kitten with a ‘safety’ barrier in between.  Just let Elvis know that you still love him and continue to give him a lot of attention so he won’t feel left out.

    3 cats, 3 dogs. . .   I was more worried trying to get the one dog not to BITE the new kitty than having the other cats hiss at her.  Luckily the cats quit hissing about two or three days later.  However the youngest of the three cats is a scaredy cat now and always comes running to daddy (and away from everything else) when she needs some reassurance   :p
    The dog still bites everything when he’s in a bad mood though. . . including me.

    I know that my cat would freak out if I brought home a new kitten. The only thing I can think of that would calm her down is tuna. You might try giving your older cat some tuna in another room and let it eat it there by itself, just a suggestion.

    I don’t try to get Soubi a brother/sister because I am sure he will hate anything who might steal his position of center of the attention.Sweet baby you have there! Me loves cats!!![]’s
