I have a 16 yo F, 2 one and a half yo neutered males who get along great, and a 6 month old unneutered male kitten that I have been fostering since he was 8 weeks old. His mother and three sisters were adopted. My question is this, should I keep the kitten? I have to decide soon as he is eligible for adoption and once he is displayed at Petsmart, he will go fast, a real cutey. He plays with the older boys, but Spike (the alpha) has been pretty rough on him and has shown some agression towards his buddy and my old girl. My other male who used to groom the kitten and spike, seems a little cooler towards kitty too. When I see that, I think the young one should go, but when I see them playing amicably, and I have all three of them on the couch with me, I want to keep him. The old girl hates them all and generally stays in my bedroom with me, or alone with all her necessities. I am home when she is out with them. I know neutering will help, but I am afraid he may challenge Spike for the alpha role and I can't bear upsetting Spikey. He is the crowned prince. Is three a crowd with neutered males? Should I allow this guy to find a better home via being traumatized by being put in a display cage for a few weeks? thanks.
