Introducing 2 female cats
I have a 4 years old cat since 2 years.
2 weeks ago I adopted a 1 year old cat.
I have followed Jackson Galaxy's method on introducing two
cats. I have taken it really slow; I allowed them to see each other AFTER
introducing scent, peeping through doors and sharing meal times across the
door. In short, I did all my research on introducing both.
Now when I allowed both kitties in one room my problem is,
They just sit there hissing and growling at each other. None
of both came forward to at least sniff one another. None of both attacked each
other (Thanks Goodness) But only the hissing and growling continues whenever
they face each other. The result is my older/resident cat just backs off and
moves out of the room slowly as if she gets scared of the new kitty. This has
been happening from 5 days. Same thing.
Is this normal?
If this running away continues how will they get closer,
sniff each other and make friends?
Am I doing something wrong?
Do I have to do something else?
Sorry for the long post, Please guide me.
