Be sure to check out the "introducing the newcomer" threads here in the forums & in the CatBehavior section of TCS - the tips really work!
Thanks! I'm sure Lu will do a lot of hissing.. but I hope she won't be too mean, since she's a kitten. She actually doesn't have a name yet.. I was commenting babyharley on her newer kitten Davidson.
I'll have to check out the introduction threads.. thanks!

Be prepaird to wonder how your cat got so big overnight.
We always though Polly to be petite and light.
We got he kitten and now Polly is SO FAT AND HUGE! We pick her up and it's like JEEZE Polly! When did you get so big!!
Polly and Roxie fought the first day togther. I didn't know about keeping them seperate and letting them smell each other and using towels and the like.
We just threw 'em together. lol I guess we were lucky. They hissed a bit the first day, the second day they were just fine.
Polly has to be told everynow and then to be gentle. Roxie was so small when we got her 5 weeks old, and Polly would play with her like she was a stuffed squirell!
Good luck with introductions!
I'm excited, too.. I haven't brought home a "kitten" for a long time. The last cat we brought home was last August, and she's about 14 now.
I'm sure I will be a little surprised.. she's so tiny right now.. if she ends up as fat as Lu, I'll really be surprised..
I'll have to try the towel/scent thing, by the way.. that sounds like a good idea.
