Hi all, Sorry for my first post being a long one, but my boyfriend and I are a little unhappy about the progress our cat and kitten have made in getting along. We just wanted to check if there was anything else we could do to help the process, or if things seem normal. The first thing I need to mention is that we didn't introduce them properly (or as how most suggest). We've tried re-introductions, but nothing has really seemed to work. I wish I looked on the internet before about how to introduce them properly . Here are some of the bad things: - My cat still growls/hisses and swats at the kitten. No blood is ever drawn, and no loud meows. The kitten is even starting to defend itself a bit. - She doesn't seem to want to play as much anymore. It also doesn't help that she enjoys going outside when the weather is nice. - She will still swat and growl at my boyfriend and I when we try petting her. - She'll growl when the kitten runs by and makes it's little noises. Some of the good things: - They eat beside each other in the mornings and at supper time. - They both eat treats and cheese near each other. My cat seems to growl more when they eat treats together, but is ok with cheese. - Our cat still comes out and visit and has come back to our bed at nights every once in a while. It's not all doom and gloom here. We have seen a bit of progress as our cat used to be scared and wouldn't come out form under the bed. Every once in a while they will both end up on our bed as well. Pepper will growl, but she'll stay for a bit of time. We lived in my Mom's house about a year ago and she had a cat as well. Our cat and her cat used to play together at night time by chasing each other around. WE kind of expected these 2 to do the same, but no luck. We've also tried products like Feliway and drops for the water. They've been together now for about 3 months. We're willing to stick this out, but it does get a little sad at times as you feel bad for both animals. Anyways, we're just wondering if things seem normal, or if by 3 months they should have gotten along. Some people have suggested that we have to wait until the kitten is older, and some believe it will just take more time. The other good thing we have going for us is that we are moving from out apartment into a new home in 2 months. It may help on neutral territory? Anyways, thanks for any info/help that can be provided .
