Good upbringing becomes the factor of key importance when we talk about the cat getting along with man harmoniously and happily. Unfortunately, a lot of cat owners close their eyes at the necessity of this, naively thinking that after a while all required habits will come by themselves. But this opinion is wrong. As soon as the kitten comes into your house, he is your responsibility. So don't accuse the pet of bad manners if you didn't make any efforts to train him.
First of all, you should memorize: you must not let the kitten do everything he wants.
From the very first days it is necessary to let the kitten understand how far he can go. The kitten must have an idea of all forbidden places in the house (for example, a kitchen table).
Prevent your kitten from getting unwanted habits.
Is your cat spayed? Unspayed cats are hormonal and temperamental. If she is spayed, she may be one of those cats who can only tolerate a certain amount of touching/petting, then they get overstimulated and lash out. You need to pay attention to her body language to see how her mood is changing. If she's eating everything in site, she may have parasites or hyperthyroidism (although she's very young for that). As far as the other cat is concerned, you could try reintroducing them as if they were strangers, but they may never be buddies. Get her to the vet for a checkup and check out these sites for behavioral information - ASPCA, HSUS, cat pages at about.com. Local shelter may also have behavior information available.
