Cat doesn’t want to be pet after bringing in new kitten?
Hello! I’ve had my cat for about eight years and she has lived with dogs and one other cat before. I recently moved out of my parent’s house (yay college) and my cat has been an only pet for about a year now.
We decided to rescue a kitten and have been following the slow introduction rules with them. It has only been a few days, so everything is still new.
But now my older cat doesn’t really want attention from me and gets upset when I do try to pet her. She growls and hisses. I’m assuming this is because of the stress?
I’m just worried she will become a recluse now and feels as though this kitten is replacing her, which is not the case. Would appreciate advice and support!
