    Hello all, just after some advice please.

    We have a 11 month old ragdoll cat who seemed to want a friend. So we got a new 9 week moggy who is incredibly friendly, well socialised and playful.

    We have tried to introduce them slowly. Initially there was some hissing which has settled and now they seem to be ok at times, they will eat together and occasionally sniff.
    However the older cat is mostly very aggressive to the kitten. We keep them apart most of the day but when we allow them to come together the older cat will be on edge and then suddenly will chase her, pin her down and bite her on her face or body. When she does this she seems to be doing it in a way that seems she thinks the kitten is her prey? The kitten hasn’t been hurt but does cry at this and we intervene immediately.

    Is this normal? Is there anything we can do to stop this or help them integrate/get used to each other more? Any advice is much appreciated.

    Thank you,
