I have a 3 year old female cat named Wrigley. When I lived with my roomate he too had a 3 year old cat and the two of them got along great. They would always hang out together and have great wrestling matches. 5 months ago I moved out and sadly we each took our cats.
I moved in with my sister who has three adult male cats, all over the age of 7. After a few months I got a female kitten for my Wrigley so she would have a playmate again.
It has been 4 months now. Wrigley gets along great with the older cats but growls and swats at the kitten whenever it is nearby. She is never vicious and it's sometimes quite comical when the kitten stalks Wrigley, gets a swat in, and runs away. Why would she act like this? When I get the kitten spayed will that make a difference? She used to wrestle and play with the other cat all the time. Now she has a kitten that wants to do that but want nothing to do with her?!?

Sounds like either your cat is ticked off still or there is going to be a dominance battle. Your cat Wrigley may be sensing that this kitten is a threat for your attention and her authority. It may help when she gets spayed. It's hard to tell yet. There may be some more bumpy road to come in the dominance battle. Good Luck!
