My new kitten i adopted recently is VERY clingy to people. when frightened she jumps on my shoulder and wraps herself around me. but whats really bothering me is that i have other pets (dogs and a cat) but she almost refuses to associate herself with them. my dogs are harmless, they are about the same size as the cat. and whenever they send signals indicating that they want to play with her, she misinterprets them and hisses and then that gets my dogs barking at her. from the looks of her behavior she most definately is a people cat. it's worrying me because im always supervising them and whenever i need to go out, i dont want to have them fighting. i need her to aqquiant herself with them so she can establish a relationship with not only humans but animals too. i just wonder if this is normal behavior for some cats. i know she grew up with other siblings so it's really got me curious. i wish to know if theres anything i can do to better assist my new kitten in becoming friends with the other household pets?
