Fiona (female) is 5 weeks and Dexter (male) aprox 10 weeks. Since they are both kittens, should I let them play together? Obviously, I am much too big right now to physically play with them. Meowy lets Dexter and I play footsy under the dining room door (glass) we can see one another but can't get to each other.

    At that age they should be absolutely fine. The younger they are when introduced, the easier the introduction will be.

    i agree with amber, the earlier the better! Peanut was about 12 weeks when we got Lucy, who was about 7 weeks. she was sick and MUCH smaller than Peanut so we were a little worried he'd be too rough or playful with her. But they started playing together right away. and when Peanut gets too rough, she lets him know :) i think, with supervision, you should introduce them now
