Default Unanswered: is this a good or bad sign

I have a stray cat that I feed
I'm getting it to trust me little by little

I'm wanting to take the cat in if it starts trusting me enough

Anyways I took my cat out there who is 4 months old or 5
To see the stray since they seemed so curious about each other

And the stray who is older meowed at my cat just a regular meow and the stray Came close to my cat touched his noes and without warning bit his
Neck twice my cat didn't meow during the bites so I'm guessing it didn't hurt

Will they not get along because of that was that a sign??

Did the bites draw blood? If so, your cat needs to see a vet right away. Cat bites that break the skin on another cat can very easily become infected and can be hideously dangerous. Also, you don't know what diseases the stray cat might be carrying, such as feline AIDS or leukemia. I would not let them have physical contact until you are able to tame the stray well enough to be checked out by a vet. Once you know that it's safe to expose your cat to the stray, there is no reason why they shouldn't get along perfectly well, provided they are introduced properly. Even cats that fight at first learn to live together, and often become best friends if they were lonely to start with.

Good luck! And you are very kind to want to help this poor kitty.

That's so kind of you. All cats have trust issues, especially rescued ones. It takes a lot of time to build a cat’s trust, and it takes a lot of effort from you as well.

I think the stray cat just wanted to show the youngster who is the boss. Remember that cat mothers also grab their kittens by the neck to teach them how to behave. My bet it was just a domination performance especially since your cat didn't even meow. If no blood was drawn, no hissing, no clawing and further biting I wouldn't be too worried.

Please do catch the cat and get him/her tested and neutered/spayed. Waiting takes the chance of the poor thing getting hurt or sick. But, do not expose your other cat until the tests are done.
Bless your heart for helping the poor thing!

They may get along if the stray cat gets a proper training, it needs time and patient.

How old is the stray cat by the way?
