We have been taking the introduction of our new kitten, (Gizmo), to our present cat, (Neely), and dog slowly. Not surprisingly the dog has done better. What perplexes me is that Neely is ordinarily a spunky, feisty and very self-assured female cat. She keeps her distance from the kitten but, of course, does not take her eyes off him. When she does approach him she hisses twice and then runs away. She watches him from a distance, gradually approaches again, hisses twice again and runs away again. This is not the reaction we would have expected but maybe we don't quite understand what it means. Any thoughts?
