We have a new kitten that we've added to our home with a few adult cats. The kitten, who is very scrappy and playful, will not stop harassing our older kitties. She chases them, growls at them and hisses, and is actually starting to jump on them a little too.
First, I don't know if this is normal kitten behavior (we typically adopt cats who are out of the kitten stage) that she will outgrow.
Second, how can I curb this? My poor adult kitties are being terrorized--they're scared to death of this kitten, even though they're 3 times her size. Help!
Normal kitten behaviour. They need to play a lot. They learn at this stage how to be a real cat. That's why mummy cats are exhausted all the time. They have to teach their kittens how to fight, how to hunt, how to climb. Because there is no mummy, kitten has to try it by herself. If you want to save the adult cats from the terror, you have to be the kittens mummy. You have to play a lot with her. It is kinda worse than having a baby. Buy loads of strings, toys she can chase, you have to make her tired so she would go to sleep. Or get another kitten so they can play together:P
