You may already have a cat at home but now you want to add a kitten. While kittens can look cute, your current cat might have other ideas. That’s why you need to introduce a new kitten to a cat carefully.

The first step is to keep the kitten and the cat separate so the two of them can get used to each other’s scent. Then gradually let them see each other and make sure the kitten has a separate food bowl and litter box. That way your current cat won’t feel like the kitten is intruding.

With a little bit of luck, the cat and the kitten will warm up to each other and become friends, which means you’ll now have twice the amount of trouble dealing with cats than you had before.
