Finally got my new kitten

Sorry to start a new thread, im finally getting my new kitten later , he should be about 10 weeks old, im Going to keeping him in my bedroom currently i have a 2 year old female siamese cat in my bedroom too, she is free to roam around and goes to the bathroom to do her thing, kitty litter is there, how do i go about introducing them?


Can i just keep kitten in carrier for a few days? Or do I have to put the kitten in separate bedroom first? My siamese nails are trimmed. Too excited I'm not sure how to proceed

There are some brilliant threads here on cat introductions. It would be worth doing a search for them.

That wouldn't be better than a cat carrier - the kitten wouldn't be able to see and if you are thinking of putting the lid on, it could be a disaster.

Young kittens need to be able to move and play to develop their muscles and reflexes. It is also a time when you really need to be be socialising the kitten with yourself as well as introducing him / her to their home. How things are handled at this age can have a very long term impact.

I would not suggest using that bin at all - not even temporarily.

Without the lid on the kitten will just jump out - with the lid on the kitten could suffocate. Unless you can punch 7-10 1 inch holes in the lid it's just not safe.

Is it possible to put the kitten in another room, like a bathroom, until it can be introduced to your other cat? That would be MUCH better than a kennel, cage, or that bin.

Please keep the new baby in another room if possible. He will need to be able to move around and get familiar with his new surroundings. You should be there to supervise him and get him used to being with you. Enjoy getting to know each other.
