I got my kitten a week ago. He is now 9 weeks old and for the past week i have had him seperated in a room by himself most of the time cuz of my other kitten who is 9 months old. I've allowed the new kitten time to come out of the room a bit, but he plays so rough with my 9 month old kitten. They usually chase each other around the house and the older kitten will hold him tight and try to bite the younger one. Lately, i've been allowing the older kitten a bit of time each day to come into the room where the new kitten is for them to play. I've been doing this for the past few days, but doesn't seem to be helping much yet. I tried distracting them when the older kitten tries to hurt the younger one, but then they usually go right back to fight afterwards. I really hope they'll eventually get along.
Anyway, my main concern is i have to work during the day and i need sleep at night so during those times the kitten is by himself in the room. There are plenty of toys for him and his food and litterbox is in the room. He usually cries a lot when i'm not in the room (especially at night) and it tends to keep me up. I have tried playing with him before going to sleep and i put the radio on. Neither of those have helped yet. Is there anything else that could help him feel less alone since i can't be with him all of the time?
