Cats Not Getting Along

I have a 15 week old kitten (male) it took him awhile to like us as he was a stray, but I have had him for 5 days. In that time something had come up where I ended up fostering a 8 year old female cat named Cleo. She also has no eyes on both sides. It has been a few hours, but I'm not sure if they will ever get along. They are both hissing at each other and had one or two little scraps. Help.

This is perfectly normal. You'll find cats always do this when you're introducing one to another. Make sure to have two litter boxes, not just one. Try to feed them separately if you can. The less they feel someone's trying to "take over" the more they'll accept the situation. They must each have their own scratching posts.

Clean everything, including bedclothes, and deodorize the carpets. It's a lot of work, but if one cat's smell is on everything it will make the other one feel threatened. Never put them in a room together where one feels it can't easily get out.

It might be a good idea to put a bell on the seeing cat so the blind cat always knows where it is and doesn't feel surprised by it. Make sure to keep their claws trimmed. It's unlikely they'll fight but just in case, you don't want them to hurt each other.
