Default Cat problem

Hello everyone!

My uncle brought home a 3mos old kitten which he is very cute and small. Joey gets all the attention from them. I think Mickey is feeling left out, he wants to be the top cat. Well Molly doesn't bother with him and she doesn't like Joey playing with her. Mickey was ok with the kitten at first but now he doesn't seem to want the little guy around. He seem really depressed now, eats less food then before, runs away from them now and doesn't play when the kitten is around. Mickey was very hyper and use to eat like a pig before Joey came along. Should they be concern for Mickey or do you think he is jealous of the kitten. Please let me know what you guys think! Thanks!

Welcome to the forum Kelly. Only a little time will tell how well your cats will adapt to a new cat, especially a kitten. Kittens are very active and can upset cats that have become sedate and happy with things as they were. Be sure to show a lot of extra attention to Molly and Mickey, to let them know they're not being replaced (only supplemented). After a while they should all settle into a routine where everybody gets along OK. As long as there's no overt aggression they should forge a "community" eventually. Cats are not as antisocial as some people think.
