Since we got the kittens, we have kept them downstairs and the big cats upstairs. I wish I could say they got along, but every time I put the kittens and big cats together, the kittens get growled and hissed at by the big cats. I\'m not sure how to get them like each other. Is this normal behavior and do I need to worry about the kittens getting attacked?
I feel like we can\'t bring them together just yet. Our siamese is getting over her cold, but after that we\'ll try to gradually work the kittens in. So far from what we\'ve seen, they don\'t do anything too aggressive. Just swatting here and there when it comes to physical contact. Though we are not sure about our siamese. She hisses, but we wonder if she\'ll get violent when confronted with the new kittens. She\'s very moody of course and absolutely cannot stand change.
I also would like to mention that my husband and I live in a two story house with the in-laws because we can\'t afford a place of our own yet. We are have been trying to sell the house, but the economy is so bad right now. My in-laws big cats stay upstairs and sleep with them, while our kittens stay downstairs and sleep with each other, right on top of each other. I\'ve never been comfortable sleeping with cats in the room, anyways. At some point I hope to get them to get along and mingle around the house together.
