Default kittens fighting

hi

i have a 10 week old male kitten who ive had for a month and yesterday i was given a 6 week old female kitten, the problem im having is the older kitten wont leave the younger one alone, i thought they were just playing but im not so sure as the little one is hissing and growling and the male is leaping on her with his mouth round her neck and kicking her with his back legs.

Is this normal and will they get on as i really want to keep them both but im scared to leave them alone incase he hurts her

Any help apreciated

thanks

Default Hi and welcome

I'm always reluctant to use the words "normal" and "cat" in the same sentence, but in this case, I think it's a safe bet.

He is playing with her as if she was his litter mate. Kittens play quite rough at times. I have a 7 month old female. Before I took her, I had occasion to see how she carried on with other cats. Her brother played quite rough at times. Now that she's home with me and the older cats, I really think she misses that. She tries to get the big cats to play, but they just swat her and go away.

I don't believe you have anything to worry about.

How about posting some pictures? We love pictures.

Hi, welcome to the forum. First of all, concats on taking in two cute kittens.
Your problem is NORMAL. They will take time to get along to each other, even to a new meowmy and new home. We all have this kind of NORMAL experience. Just make sure you deal with it PROPERLY. And here is an article about how you can introduce them properly (step by step), I myself found it practical :

Re-Directed Aggression Towards Other Cats

Good luck and please share with us your kittens' pictures. They must be lovely !

Oh wow, Max and Paddy are sooo sweet, I love them! As the others have said it sounds like typical kitten play fighting, and great fun to watch!

BTW, my friend called her kittens Max and Paddy too ! (both of you fans of Peter Kay??)
