Default Just Brought A New Kitty Home And They Are Not Getting Along!

Hello all! Today is the second day I brought a new kitty home (a 13-week old female kitten to a household which has a 16-week old male kitten). We had the 16-week old male kitten since he was 5.5 weeks old. Both cats are not neutered or spayed yet. The male kitten is having issues and is being very insecure/jealous. We got the female kitten her own litter box and some toys but Vega (the male kitten) hisses at her and has not accepted her yet (and even uses her litter box!). They can get near each other but Vega likes to chase her down from time to time. Anyhow, any suggestions? Thanks in advance!



Vega is the Siamese and the new misses is the striped kitty

If they are in a play tunnel together they must be getting along pretty well. It's only been one day. Cats need time to get used to changes. Hissing and even growling are normal forms of cat communication. They'll be fine, let them progress at their own rate.

Don't delay on the spaying and neutering though. Females can go into heat as early as 4 months, and he is older than she is so may become sexually mature just at the time she is coming into her first heat. I'd have the female done first.

Congratulations on your new family member!

PS Vega is not Siamese. There are many cats with this kind of coloring. Most of them are not siamese.
