Help, new cat in the house

So, Today I brought a new cat, an Angora with 7 kittens, my 2 cats are very afraid of her and they hiss to her and very loud, not even to new people they did it, I dont think the angora even understand that language because she just doesnt care and is exploring the house. What should I do?

Also, the litterbox should be in the same place?

Are the new cat and her kittens being kept separate from the two you already had? You should never bring home strange cats and just throw them in with yours, especially with kittens involved as it's impossible to know how mama kitty will react and unsafe for the kittens. Not to mention diseases that could be spread, especially if the kittens are too young for vaccines.

You're also going to need more than one litterbox.

Here are great guidelines for introducing cats:

It is possible that they may all become friends, but they may just end up avoiding each other. My oldest cat just became friends with my two younger cats recently and we adopted her(the older cat) 8 months ago. Mine are all female also.
