Hey guys! If you remember, I have a himalayan cat named Guiness. He is 18 months old and is our only pet, besides the fish. We got him when he was 8 weeks old and has been held and spoiled rotten from day one. I recently got in touch with a kitten rescue group. They have a kitten that needs a home fairly soon and I think we are going to take him. He is 8 weeks old and is a gray tabby. My questions for you are: How do I introduce the new kitten to Guiness? How can I make sure they will get along? Do I need to get a seperate, smaller litter box for the kitten? Seperate eating dishes? I know he needs kitten food, and Guiness is on adult food, but at 8 weeks can they eat dry food, or canned? We had to feed Guiness people baby food for the first couple of weeks when we got him because he would not eat at all! I feel like I am starting all over, but I can't remember all the things we had to do with Guiness. I do remember locking him in the bathroom for the first week or so with his litter box, so he would learn to do that. Should I do that again with this kitten? I feel like a new, nervous mom!
