|This is a bit long...
About 2-3 weeks ago, my fiance and I adopted 2 kittens together, Spiuk (F) and Kuips (M) (they were about 4 weeks old at that time). They got along great because Spiuks mom had taken in the orphan Kuips. About 2 days ago, Kuips passed away, and the vet said it was just due to hereditary problems. Everyone in the family was sad because Spiuk and Kuips were our first cats and we felt guilty because we didn't have more experience to help him! Our dogs who had adopted the kittens as part of the family wouldn't get up from lying next to the box that we had put Kuips in. In all cases, we adopted another 6 week old Female kitten to keep Spiuk company.
Anyway, Spiuk has shown a lot of interest in the new kitten. But every time she play pounces on the kitten, the kitten hisses and claws at her. I'm worried because I don't know if this is normal. Should I break them up when the kitten hisses? or just let them figure it out? Is there anything else I should do to make this work out?
PS- Pictures will be up shortly!
