Need advice! 2 kittens knowing each other.
I have a 6 month cat (Cleo) and recently a kitten (Nami) of 2 or 3 months, both female.
The kitten stays in my room where she eats, drinks and uses litterbox, while the older one in the rest of the house. This is since 12/03.
For the first 2 days Cleo and Nami have no direct contact, but they were sniffing their scent on things like my shirt, towels, trousers, my hands, etc. As I expected, Cleo hissed and growled everytime she smelled something with Nami's scent. I did some scent swapping so she get more used to it.
By the third day she stopped hissing but there was some little growl.
It was the 16/03 she didn't hissed or growled at things so I decided to open the door. At first she hissed to Nami then she started to hiss less and just growl something.
Nami didn't hiss or growl when Cleo was around looking at her but she did whenever Cleo was very close hissing or growling.
Now, Cleo approaches to Nami without fear (i think) and sniffs her closely. BUT she is always trying to tap her with her paw. Everytime I open the door she goes under the bed looking for Nami and taps her. When Nami goes to the living room to explore, Cleo is there to tap her and sometimes Cleo lies on the floor like if she were going to roll on the floor and tries to tap her.
Nami hisses/growls and even taps Cleo in return.
Should I close the door and wait for Nami get used to the new life or keep the door open and supervise their encounters.
