|Did you separate them at first? Cats take time to warm up with another one. When I got Juliette, she had my room as a safety room. She was in it for several days until I allowed her out to see Alex. Then, she would be out for a couple of hours at a time. It was a gradual introduction.
Alex took to her like no other cat I have had. They play together now. He is nine years old and Juliette is now five months. She chases him and drops the ball down to him when she is on the cat tree.....By the way, do you have a cat tree? It helps to increase the area. Cats are territorial.
Your two year old may see the new kitten as a threat. Juliette would cry out in the room. She wanted to see Alex. He would wait for her to come out of the room in those first days. Now, they may sleep together. He grooms her each morning. Any questions, ask....Congrats on the new kitten. p.s. Alex and Juliette did hiss that first day. It hasn't happen again. I did use a towel to move his scent onto her in the first two weeks. Then, I would rub the scent off of her onto him. I wanted them to smell like each other. It worked quickly.
