new kitten questions
I have a kitten 12 weeks old who was introduced to our home 4 weeks ago. We already have a cat who is about 6 years old. They are both male. I have 2 questions: one- is it common for a kitten to "forget" to use the litter box and have occasional accidents? He does know where the litter box is and in the one month that we have had him, he has had about 4 accidents and one just this morning. I thought once he knows where to go, there shouldn't be any messes to clean up.
Question 2: The kitten is very aggressive to the older cat and basically jumps all over him frequently (10 to 15 times a day). The older one does fight back but so far it's just rough play. I guess my question is, is this a phase during an adjustment period and would I know by now if the two are not compatible? Is the kitten just establishing his ground? The kitten has not yet been neutered.
