I have a 3 year old female cat and recently got a 10 month old male kitten to keep her company. After the normal introduction period, I released the kitten and apart from a little hissing and growling on the female's part, there has been no actual fighting. The kitten obviously wants to play with the older cat, but she usually wants to be left alone. But when I put out food, the female seems to block the kitten's access to the wet food. I have two bowls and place them several feet apart, but the female will eat a little from one and then go to the other one when the kitten approaches. He's been eating plenty of dry food, but how do I get it so he will not be prevented by the older cat from eating the higher quality food?

Even during the adjustment period when I had him tucked away in a separate room, he always seemed to prefer dry food, often eating the wet food when the dry food was gone. Could he maybe just not be interested in the wet food with plenty of dry food at his disposal?
