Hi, I need some advice regarding my two cats. I have had my 6 year old male cat for about 1.5 years, and last month we adopted a 5 month old kitten. We kept them separated for 2 weeks and followed the advice from the thread on this site. At first things seemed to be going well. There was a bit of growling between them, (mostly from my male cat), and a few swipes at each other when they crossed paths, but nothing major. However, for the past few days my kitten has been attacking my older cat. Everytime she sees him she swipes at him and chases him all around the house, (a lot of grwoling and hissing). My male cat is holding his ground, ( he is a lot bigger than her), but I can tell that he is stressed out. I have caught him peeing and pooping throughout the house, (and he's never done that before), and his eyes are watery a lot of the time. He has one spot up high that he loves to curl up and sleep on, but this morning my kitten started fighting with him and she has now taken over the spot. I feel so bad for my older cat. We adopted the kitten because we thought he was lonely, but now my heart is breaking seeing him so upset over her. I don't know what to do. I should mention that my kitten is not spayed yet, (she goes in on Monday), and she was in heat last week. Since the heat cycle ended she has been mean to older cat. Thanks for any advice.
