Jesse is attacking ME

so as you all kno i brought home a 7 week old kitten about 3 weeks ago.
everything was going fine until latley jesse has been hissing ALOT more, and started hissing at ME
he has never done this in his life. unfortunatly, my family and i have decided to find frankie a new home, becuase jesse is our priority, and they just dont mesh. but will jesse continously hiss at me even when frankie is gone? if i pick him up he starts hissing, and if i pet him he starts.

please help me guys
jesses my life

Who is Frankie? Since the kitten seems a bit scared, maybe try the gentle approach instead of just picking him up, walk over to him calmly, sit down by him, and try petting him a bit, if he doesn't back away or hiss then give him a treat or play with his favorite toy, my suggestion would be positive reinforcement so he enjoys being held and pat. Keep us posted!

Re: Jesse is attacking ME

What kind of introductions did you do cat to cat? You cant just bring a cat home and put them in the mix. Its a territorial thing.

You have to give cats time to feel safe in a new home or safe when new cats or dogs are brought into their lives. this article may help.
