I hope someone can help me. We recently adopted a 4-month-old kitten. We already have a 3-year-old cat. The kitten is taking to his new surroundings just fine. Our 3 y/o is our main concern. He does not eat. Both cats have taken well to each other. The older cat follows the kitten around as if he is not sure what to make of this new addition. We kept them separate for the first 3 days. On the second day the older cat seemed to be stressed and we noticed he wasnâ€™t eating as much as he normally does. On the third day we opened the door in hopes it would alleviate some stress. It has now been 24 hours since the grand introduction and our cat has not eaten. We have tried to entice him with treats and tuna. We had a similar situation bout 3 years ago when we introduced this cat to our other cat. His health declined and finally went into renal failure 18 month later. I am afraid that history is repeating itself. Please help!
