Q. Our 8yr old cat does not get along with our 5 month old kitten. It was fine for a while now all he does is hiss at her even from across the room.
A. This is a common occurrence when a young kitten is introduced to an older, established cat. It may take time or may change once the kitten is spayed or neutered. Calming pheromone collars or sprays may be effective in decreasing the anxiety/aggression in the home until the older cat accepts the kitten. Search www.pet360.com for pheromone products.
