Q: We have had our cat Bigsy for eight years, but recently took in a stray kitten that spits at Bigsy all the time. What can I do about it?

A: Unless open hostilities begin, I would advise allowing the two cats to work it out on their own, whilst trying to encourage unity by feeding them together. Groom them with the same brush to expose them to each other’s scent, and consider getting a pheromone diffuser from your vet to calm your kitten.

Give each cat plenty of attention and accept that they may learn to tolerate each other’s company rather than enjoy it. Finally, get your kitten neutered as soon as possible, as her hormones may not be helping matters.
