    Help! Resident cats not accepting 9 week old kitten

    Here is a video from today. Maya (gray) is chasing and swatting Sitka the kitten (white). Does this look like aggression or something else? Maya didn't hiss, growl or bite. Sitka was hissing. You can see them on the bottom left corner, unfortunately the Nest camera angle wasn't great.

    Help! Resident cats not accepting 9 week old kitten

    It’s better but not great yet. The kitten chases Kai a lot and Kai hissed at her and runs away, but the kitten doesn’t get the message. For the most part they’re ok with each other, except when the kitten gets all hyper. Maya tolerates the kitten for the most part but will often corral her into...

    When she attacks, does she hurt them? or just swatting them? Thanks!

    7 week update - The kitten (Sitka) is about 3.5 months now and was recently spayed (last week). The 2 resident cats (2.5 yo, female) are doing better with the kitten but we're not out of the woods yet... One of the females (Kai) will basically hiss at the kitten anytime she gets too close...

    My almost 2 month kitten keeps bothering the adult cats in the litter boxes.

    We're facing the exact same problem with our recently adopted kitten, she's 12 weeks now and runs anytime she hears the litter box. I have to be on watch to distract her when I hear the cats go to the bathroom. We have 2 litterboxes downstairs and one upstairs but the adult cats won't use the...

    Ringworm? 12 week old kitten

    We’re 11 days in since I noticed the hair loss and we started treatment the next day. She’s on Itrafungol for 7 days on/7 days off for a total of 5 weeks. We’re also doing Miconosol twice a day and Micoseb bath once a week. The hair is staring to grow back and no new spots have appeared (knock...

    I saw this on my cats face, im on vacation and theres no vets around here we tried sending the vet the photo but they didnt know what that is.

    Looks like ringworm unfortunately. Dealing with it right now. If you can get the equivalent of Monistat 7 (miconazole 2%) you can start treating topically until you can get to a vet. Wash everything you can with hot water and disinfect all surfaces you can with bleach, it’s very contagious.

    Ringworm? 12 week old kitten

    Here we are after 3 days of meds, it almost looks bigger… Does it usually get worse before it starts to improve?

    How did you introduce them in the first place? Is there a big age difference? Thank you!

    Help! Resident cats not accepting 9 week old kitten

    We have 2 Feliway plug ins in the area the cats spend the most time. We decided to not isolate the kitten because she screams bloody murder when she’s locked up, she’s too little to be left alone so much (12 weeks). She’s on oral meds, topical meds and everyone is getting a medicated shampoo...

    Help! Resident cats not accepting 9 week old kitten

    3 week update - we seem to have hit a wall with the integration of the kitten (Sitka) with the resident cats. One of them (Maya) doesn’t growl at her anymore, will hiss on occasion but has increasingly chased and cornered her, doesn’t hurt her though. The other cat (Kai) still hisses at her...

    Ringworm? 12 week old kitten

    Oh my goodness! This is incredible, thank you so much for sharing your experience in such details. It definitely helps to get a real life experience and not the worst case scenario things you can find on the internet. She’s too rambunctious to contain at this point, so I’m hoping with cleaning...

    Ringworm

    Thank you for the reply! I nearly broke down crying today, it feels so overwhelming. How can a 1/4in bald spot wreck our life like this 😭? It’s impossible for us to quarantine this baby, she’ll scream bloody murder if we lock her up and we’re finally making progress with the introduction to the...

    Ringworm? 12 week old kitten

    Thank you for your response! My anxiety is spiraling with this, thank you for then reassurance. I washed everything yesterday and bleached as much as I could but we still have the area rugs, cat trees, etc. that can’t be disinfected (and too expensive to replace). Isolating the kitten is not...

    Ringworm? 12 week old kitten

    We’ve had this little girl for almost 3 weeks now. I noticed a little spot on her paw a couple of days ago but didn’t think anything of it. Today the spot looked larger and it hit me that it might be ringworm. It glows green under a black lamp… We can’t get a vet appointment for another week...

    The kitten we just adopted tested positive for ringworm today with the woods lamp :( How are your girls doing? I've spend all evening vacuuming, throwing everything in the wash, and disinfecting with bleach and lysol. I have 2 resident cats (2.5y) and an 11y dog, the kitten is way to hyper to...
