I have two grown cats, one male, one female. They're outside cats, They're both "fixed" and are noramally really nice kitties. I Love 'em both, but they hate the new kitty on the block. I just took in an abononed female kitten, a little orange kitty that looks to be a few months old at the most. I found her on the edge of death's door at a car-lot a week ago and just couldn't stand to hear her pitiful meow any more. So I took her home, cleaned her up and fed her. Afterwards I showed her to my two resident cats, but the male hisses at her if she gets too close, and the female won't get anywhere near her and just sits back a hundred feet and hisses like a wounded cheetah. She won't even eat out of the same bowl! I figured they would take a while getting used to having a new cat (kitten) around and all, and the situation's improved with the male. He'll let her rub up against him at least a few times before taking his paw and shoving her away. He'll hiss at her if she really gets on his nerves. The female however, doesn't even want me to pet her with the same hands that pet the kitten. WHAT'S the deal? I'm not a cat-pro or anything, so any help would be GREATLY appreciated! THANKS!
