The only way you can be sure is by taking your cat to your vet. I take all my new pets to our vet for a good going over. The vet will also give you good tips on raising the pet, what food is the healthiest and all the shots they should have. Marcy Some vet clinics offer a free, new kitten check-up. Call around to see if there's one available in your area and/or surrounding area. Generally speaking, if the kitten is eating, drinking, using the litter box (going #1 & #2), gaining weight, being playful, and doesn't have any obvious ailments (runny/goopy eyes or nose, worms, etc.), the odds are that your kitten is healthy. However, it is always best to have your new kitten examined by a vet, vaccinated, dewormed, and spayed/neutered (at 5-6 months). And, I can't stress the spay/neuter part enough! It will eliminate a lot of future problems & headaches.... spraying, pregnancy, driving you crazy with the yowling/crying to get outside, etc.

How do I stop my cat from being mean to the kitten?

If the kitten is not the cats then your cat is probably putting this annoying, playful little kitten in it's place. If your cat is just jutting out her paw without claws extended then she is telling the kitten who is boss. However, if the cat is biting or being nasty to the kitten then you are going to have to separate them for awhile and if this doesn't work you will have to consider giving the kitten away to someone you know. Generally in time your cat will tolerate the kitten as it starts to grow up.

Do male cats know when the kitten is theirs?

Some male cats know a kitten is theirs by their scent and mother, but most males even if they know the kitten is theirs will probably not want to have much to do with it, because of the mother cat's protectiveness over her children. However a few male cats will actually bring food to the mother and babies and take care of them part of the time.
