When You Introduce A New Kitten To Older Cats?

The best time to introduce a kitten to an older cat is when the kitten is approximately 6-8 weeks old. You must have your veterinarian’s advice before introducing any new animal into your household, including kittens. Kittens are born with very small brains and may be more susceptible to situations in which they accidentally injure themselves or others. Their inability to communicate pain makes them especially vulnerable at this age period, so it is important that you follow all instructions from your veterinarian for proper handling of the kitten during these first few weeks after birth.
