Why can't he get along?

We have a 6 year old Siamese, a 5 year old Himalayan and a 6 month old Snow Shoe kitten. Sammy our oldest just will not be nice to the kitten. Our himmie made friends quickly with the kitten and they get along fine but Sammie just growls and hisses, spits and makes awful Siamese noises as soon as the kitten gets anywhere near him. At times the kitten will lick his head and Sammy will lick the kitten's but most of the time Sammy is just a pain in the butt. Sam has also turned against our other cat and our other cat has been fighting with Sam too.

To be fair the kitten does like to try to play rough with Sammy (the former King of Rough House). It's all so hard to understand. Sammy had no problem accepting our other cat when we got him as a kitten.

The kitten was "fixed" this week, we are hoping that will help.

I'm about ready to trade them all in for a nice bird.

My cats do the same thing NEW
by: Misa

my misa who is a ten year old Siamese, tends to get pissy with the new kitten in the house michi, though michi has been here a while and its starting to calm down now. they sleep in the same room and will share the same space for a long period of time with out complaint and yesterday we caught them playing together. my ten year old and my one year old. so don't give up hope everything will work out.

Why cant he get along NEW
by: Beatrice

Of course Sam is put out by the arrival of a new agile young beautiful male kitten, he feels as if he has been usurped in your affection. It's no good, no matter what you do, this is how he, Sam, perceives it.!! It is always dangerous to bring another male cat in, and a younger one at that! I really can't help you except to say that you will need to give Sam lots and lots of affection and treat him still as if he is TOP GUN JOE!!!! Other wise he will permanently resent the younger cat's presence and this is understandable. They cannot articulate how they feel, so will hiss and snarl and cry.
