Hello everyone:
Have a kitten free to a good home,
I'd keep him/her but my other 2 cats
won't allow it...(they hiss/growwll
when I bring the kitten near them.)
If you want to see pictures, please
email me (address below) and I'll
send it to you.
The kitten is about a month old, its
black/brown with bluish eyes and it
looks like it might be a calico.
If you have it in your heart to take
care of a cute kitten, please email
me back and I'll reply.
Thxs,
N

This sounds like a normal part of the feline introduction process. Give it time. Your two older, established cats have to work out the "clawing" order with the kitten. I know, because this is exactly what happened when I brought home Lilith Kitten to Capt. Midnight and Kitty Schottland three years ago.
Let us know how it works out.

Cats always hiss and growl when another cat enters the home. It's their natural behavior - they HAVE to. Please consider keeping the kitten. Cats that carry on like banshees for a month or two will often end up best buddies with their former enemies a month after that and almost always will end up tolerating each other just fine.

If you want to keep the kitten, then you should!
Just let 'em hiss and growl it out. One day you'll find them all curled up sleeping together and everything will be fine. It's not "our way" of making friends, but it is theirs and on it's own terms, it works :>
Please give the 2 adults more time to become accustomed to the new kitten. They will accept her, in time.
A month old? It shouldn't even be away from its mother let alone offfered for adoption. They can barely eat soft food at that age.

Yeah LT, a month old or maybe even younger.
I didn't ask for it, she/he (don't know if
its a boy or girl kitty) just showed up
under my window wailing away for about 3
hours before I went out and got her in. The
mama-cat was nowhere to be seen and never
came back at all. If I can find the mama
cat, I'd gladly let her have her kitty back.

At that age, just keep the kitty separate in a safe, warm place. How are you feeding it? As the kitten gets older you can begin introducing it slowly to your other cats. I'm certain they will be pretty used to it's presence in the house by then. This is a real baby kitty. The cat gods put it under your window for SOME reason.

something's happened to the mother, then. Poor kitten needs a box of its own, towels laid over a heat pad and a small, plush toy to keep it company they
love to snuggle against something a bit bigger than they are and furry. Makes 'em think it's Mom.
I guess you're using KMR and a syringe? a lot of work. but baby kittens can be saved that way.
Thanks for rescuing it. I can't help you homing it as I am in Florida.

Dumb question - but will an adult cat hurt a kitten?

I know with dogs, it's very rare for an adult to hurt a puppy. Not saying it doesn't happen, but generally, a non-psycho adult knows how to deal with a puppy without inflicting injury.
If the same generally holds true with cats, that may ease things for her, because she won't have to constantly worry about the kitten being beheaded or bitten.
