How Do You Introduce A Kitten To An Older Cat?

by Lori

(OH)

We have a 12 year old cat, and wanted to get another kitten. We will be moving into a larger home soon, but do not plan on getting rid of the two as they are very close. The problem is that our cat is scared of other animals (even rabbits). He has been fine with dogs up until now, but he hasn’t been around any cats except for this one we bought from a rescue group about 2 months ago. Our new kitty would probably fit in perfectly with him and we really want her to come along so she can learn how to play with our older cat without having direct contact with his claws and teeth!

Any suggestions?
