Friend of mine has a "queen" cat with four kittens, about 5 weeks old. About 3
weeks ago, a really cute cat about 4 months old (female) was dumped off near
friend's house, so they took her in (cat had its claws trimmed, would have been
killed by local dogs + couldn't hunt, would've starved).
This new cat is super-loving and such, except for one thing.....is very mean to
the kittens of the other female in the house. Hisses at them, slaps at them.
This is very odd, because when the new cat was introduced to the household, it
tried desperately to play and be friendly to the other *** and mid-age
cats....and now, when it could be indoctrinating new playmates, it is mean to
Any ideas as to how to get the cats reconciled? Why would the older kitten be
behaving this way?
