I have two cats living with my son and I. My 6mnth old kitten went missing for a few days and was eventually found in a neighbours house. When we brought him home; the normally friendly older cat has been acting very territorial. He slowly moves close and sniffs, espcially around the bum area. He then he makes a strange cry and starts to fight the kitten. I have had to seperate the two. Can anyone tell me whats going on and how to prevent harm coming to the kitten?? In addition, im afraid to let the younger one out of the house in fear he will get lost again as im not sure why he got lost initially???? Please help. Thankyou.

oh they'll be fine.

I've had a cat that would lash out at another after they were taken out of the house for a trip to the vet for an hour.

they'll get used to each other again shortly.

@chai2,
Right, and ask the neighbors not to invite your cat in for a visit.

About 40 years ago, we had a cat whom we raised from a kitten.
His name was Pussy Cat.
Then my mother brought home a kitteness.
He was shocked. He recoiled and sulked.

Within a few hours, he fled, never to be seen again.

that'll happen sometimes if the cat is an indoor/outdoor model.

If they're totally indoors, they will have to face facts eventually.

When we first brought otis home roland was shocked and infuriated.

Now they're absolutely queer for each other.

Pussy Cat was a totally indoor cat.
He abruptly converted within a few hours
of my mother's bringing home the kitten.
He took personal offense; an invasion of his territory.

He split when I was using the back door,
seeing the outdoors again for the first time in several years.
