I have a 7-year-old female (spayed) female cat and in the summer, we took in a kitten off the street, which at the time was around 4 weeks old. We took time introducing them and all seemed well, until he got bigger and wanted to play more. He jumps on her (I believe he is just playing), but she growls at him, hisses, makes this very loud growl/meow like she is fighting him and she runs from him every chance she gets. It's like when he comes around, she puts herself on guard with the tail flicking and low growls; but, when he is calm and just wants to lay down, sometimes she will allow him to lay beside her with no problems. Then again, sometimes she will go up and swat at him for no reason, as if to remind him that she doesn't want him around. Any suggestions?
