My roomate has a 4 year old spayed female cat and yesterday I bought a 2 month old unspayed female kitten. I brought the kitten home and they briefly saw each other when I took the kitten out of the box and the older cat reacted by hissing and running away. I kept them seperate the rest of the day but the older cat was very stressed to the point where she hissed and lunged at me, and then when her owner (my roomate) came home , I tried to make friends with the older kitty but she hissed at me and then continued to hiss at my roomate as well. The kitten doesnt try to interact with the older cat she let the older cat call all the shots. The older cat has always been very passive and friendly towards everyone and her extreme behavior is really frightening. Is there any advice for me?? I understand that the cats meeting needs to be very slow and gradual but Im very worried about the fact that the older cat is soo aggressive towards people now...
