So today is day 3 of introducing the new kitten to our 4 year old resident cat Asher.
So far they get to see each other a couple of times a day for 10-15 minutes (that's about as much time as they can stand to be around each other). They enjoy chasing each other around the living room.
The kitten still seems fearless and charges Asher, jumps on/at him, and sometimes even bites him. Most of the time Asher is quick to let the kitten know not to do that but I think he gets tired of it after a while. The kitten doesn't seem to know when to give it up and is very persistent. Maybe it's due to the kitten's age...approx. 8 weeks old. Does it sound like the kitten is just trying to play with Asher just as he would his littermates or is he trying to be aggressive? Will he ever learn to not do these things to Asher?
Sometimes the kitten will lay on his side with a paw raised and show his belly to Asher. Sometimes he does this move but leaves his bottom up in the air and sometimes hisses and has his ears back. He seems to be puffed up a lot around Asher. I've also noticed the kitten making a sucking noise at Asher when they get close.
What does all this behavior mean?
