We have a male cat, we got him last fall. We just got two kittens today. They are supposed to be female. I can't really tell when they are young. The woman we got the cats from told us these were both female. Well our cat is mean to one of them, keeps biting it. He leaves the other alone. I know that males are territorial. So I am wondering if the ones he keeps biting is also male. I have never owned more than one cat before.

I don't know if he is playing or not. The kitten will lay still and cry out,. The first time it happened the kitten was on her back and completely still.

It's true an adjustment period is necessary.I n my experience (and I have introduced new siblings to my furquints three times in the last three years) the boys always adjust faster to new sibs than the girls do. All three of my new babies have also been male. There was a lot of pissy hissing and slapping from all my older ones towards the babies the first week or so. It's odd (to me) that he is okay with one and not the other, but I don't really think it has to do with the sex of the babies.
It helps to keep them separate and switch rooms, and to give the older cat extra attention to help soothe upset feelings about those intruders. But in a few weeks, they will be satellites to his position as Center of the Universe. :O)
