Lacy- Old cat
Cosette- New kitten
(both girls)l
I think my cats are fighpting, but I’m not sure. when they arep “wresting” the little kitten is using the mecphanism used to kill rats with, and making noises. her ears are also back. Lacy’s ears are forward, however and she remains fairly calm. the first thing that i think is happening is lacy gets annoyed by the eagerness and energy that the kitten has. another thing is that they may start out as playing (stalking, chasing etc.) and then they actually start play fighting and the little one gets intimidated by lacys size, causing her to fight back (mechanism, ears back). what ive noticed is that lacy no longer sits with me, i never see her purr anymore. she has become more distant. I dont know, what are your thoughts? They get along fine sometimes: Lacy licks and grooms Cosette sometimes. Tell me are they getting along fine, and if not, what should I do to improve their relationship?

WIth any new situation there is an adjustment period. I would be patient, and supervise their time together and make sure that you spend good time with them both.
