Spooky 1.5 years, Sweet Potato 4 months
Hi, I’m new here. Just over a week ago, we adopted a 4 month old kitten named Sweet Potato. He is very calm and friendly, and loves my Cat Spooky, he’s always giving him head butts which Spooky ignores. When they met, Spooky only hissed and growled the first night, by the next day he was already showing interest. After a few days Spooky seems to be tolerating him. They play fight together and will stand beside each other while waiting for their food. At first, everything seemed fine, Spooky would still sit with me at night like always. But the last two or three days, he seems to have become a lot less affectionate. He barely wants to spend any time with me. I try to give him his space, but instead of following me around and sitting on the couch with us at night, he just sleeps in his bed in the spare room. I know it’s been only a little over a week, so I don’t know if this is temporary or if I ruined my relationship with him by getting a second kitten. Part of the reason I even got a second kitten is because Spooky is so playful and always seems bored during the day. But now I feel like I’ve ruined his life. I’m not sure what to do, as he and the kitten seem to be okay with each other for the most part. Does this typically get better with time? Thanks for any help, I’ve been so upset.
