How to Stop Your Cat From Rejecting a New Kitten

How to Stop 

Here are some tips for introducing a new kitten to your cat and helping them to bond.

Start by scent swapping

Do the same thing with a towel that has your cat's scent on it and place it in the kitten's area. This will help them to get used to each other's scents.

Provide separate spaces

Give each cat their own food, water, and litter box. This will help to prevent any resource guarding behavior.

Introduce them gradually

Start by introducing the cats to each other through a barrier, such as a door or a baby gate. 

Supervise interactions

When you first let the cats meet face-to-face, be sure to supervise their interactions closely. If you see any signs of aggression, separate them immediately.

Positive reinforcement

Whenever the cats interact nicely, give them treats or praise. This will help them to associate each other with positive experiences.

Be patient

It may take some time for your cat to accept the new kitten. Be patient and consistent with your introductions, and eventually they should learn to get along.
