  • It is normal at first, they are probably just trying to figure out who is the boss at this point. But I would start to be concerned if it doesnt start to get batter after a few days. Other than that just keep it quiet as you can in the house and your new one will eventually get the hint that your house isnt to scary and start coming around more. GL

  • It is normal. Give it time. I hope that both cats are fixed, unless you want to raise a family of cats?

  • Totally normal. What you should do is put your newest cat in a room by himself (with all the necessary amenities) where the others can sniff him from under the door. Be sure to spend plenty of time with him so he gets to know you. Rub him with a towel or something and let your other cats sniff it.

    Keep this up for at least a week, until they seem no longer aggressive. Then introduce them slowly to each other.

    You must remember that cats are highly territorial, and they will see this new cat as a constant threat.
