Introducing a New Cat to the Resident Cat?

I have a 7 month old female cat. So I adopted a 2 month old male cat, but since I brought in the new one the old one has been hissing and growling at him. She even battered him once. I dunno what to do to make them get along.

Introducing a new cat/kitten to an older resident cat can be tricky and what works for one cat may not always work for another. Since you have already introduced them some troubles have probably already started but if you will take the time to read some suggestions you may find one or two that will work in your home.
I considered my best move was to keep them separated (until they are adjusted to each other) and switch rooms every few days but leave all of the bedding in the room - this way they gently become accustomed to each others scent.

I would keep them separate for awhile and introduce them slowly. The older one may never accept the younger one, and you may have to find it a new home if it is being abused.

I think that's pretty normal. I had planned on introducing the new kitty to my female kitty by keeping him (the new one) in my room the first night and letting her have "her" house. The new kitty escaped from the cardboard carrier and got the run of the house, while my female retreated to the bedroom for the night and slept with me. The next day there was hissing and growling, and my female laid down the law.

Within a few days they were sleeping together. The main thing is to continue to show your resident cat plenty of attention, not letting her think you're taking attention away from her and giving it to the new kitty. Also, always feed her first, since she's not the senior cat. Your new kitty is the junior cat. Eventually, they'll work our their "pecking order."

Well I have a male neutered cat he's black and white and just the other day we got a little female cat who's not spayed and they are so so so so so so so RUDE so I wanna get two towels and rub them and switch like he\or she said above.
