    Hello everyone, I'm new here and looking for some advice. I have a lovely nearly 4 month old female kitten and will soon be getting a younger female kitten to be a companion. What is the best way to introduce them to each other? Should it be just by smell first or if under constant supervision could I just see if they get along.
    Your advice would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Kittens are usually very easy to introduce. Some say to use the slow method, personally I've found with kittens that's more hindrance than help. Keep the new arrival separate at night for the first little while, but put them together during the day and supervise.

    Please make sure your new arrival is a minimum of 13 weeks old, and if not neutered and vaccinated already then it needs to be done practically as soon you get them home.

    Thank you, vaccinations are already booked. Unfortunately I can't get either of them neutered as the vets aren't doing it at the moment due to the virus but they are going to let me know as soon as routine procedures start again. Fingers crossed they are going to get on well, I'll separate at night and keep as close eye on them
