Here's the deal. I've recently moved into a town house with my two cats. Both are spayed females ages 3 and 9 months. Anyway, the previous residents abandoned their cat. My roommate took it to the vet and everything checks out OK. He's a 3 yr neutered male, declawed, in good shape. We've tried keeping him in a seperate room and then gradually introducing his scent to the other cats on a towel or rag. The problem is, the minute the kitten gets near the towel she immediately starts to hiss, growl, and then attacks it. What should I do? My older cat doesn't seem to mind the new scents, but the kitten really freaks out. I don't want to force her to accept the new smells, but how do I get her to understand that the new scent isn't a threat when she won't even get near the towel without a huge territorial issue?
