Ms. Kitty has never had kittens. She has always been a little odd. She sucked her tail for the first few months that I’ve had her, and she would chase other cats up trees and even dogs walking down the street. She sleeps with me every night and is like my little “teddy bear” that does not like to be held, but will sleep next to me. Well, everything was going great until the younger cat, Lindsey, had kittens two months ago. But we are wanting to keep two of the kittens. All of them new kitties will be getting fixed, including mama. The problem is that Ms. Kitty growls every time she sees a kitten and wants to “run away,” either to my room or wants to go outside. How can I successfully integrate the two kittens with Ms. Kitty, but not upset her too much?

this sort of thing takes time.  i’d set up a space she can get to but the kittens can’t, so she feels secure.

be aware that she may never like the new additions to the household.  in my (very limited) experience, queens don’t handle change well unless they’re 100% in charge.
