    I have a year old girl and a 10 week old boy cat. I thought it would be nice for my older cat to have company of her own kind. I think I may be wrong. She has taken to only coming in to eat and won't let me pick her up anymore. She growls at the kitten and won't go in the conservatory or use her scratching post. I general she eats and runs outside. Will things get better or have I made a big mistake? I would love my older cat be like she was.
    Please help if you have been in this situation it's heartbreaking. :crying:

    This exactly same thing happened to me when I introduced two kittens to my older cat Thomas. Things got so bad at one point he even moved out into our brick built shed.

    However a few months on and everything has settled down. Thomas is back to his usual self and has even started coming back into the house to eat and sleep.

    I would say give it more time.

    Hello! [​IMG]

    In time your cat should accept the kitten. My eldest cat behaves like this every time a youngster is introduced :rolleyes:
