When you first bring your new kitten (or cat) home don't try to introduce it to anyone right away. He is new t o the environment. Give him time to get adapted to it, while you plant trust about you in him. Place him in a safe room. Safe room is a small room which outsiders have no access. Ideally, it would contain following items.
• A litter box
• Water bowl (at least five feet away from the litter box)
• A hiding place
• Something to sleep on (a blanket would be nice)
Interchange this blanket with your old cats' blanket every night. So, both of them will get used to each others scent.
When you feed them, put food in each side of a door. They will feel the scent of each other. They may try to play or hiss, and even groan to each other. Either way it is normal
Now it comes to the day the get introduced face to face. Put some baby powder in both of their fur (especially under their chins). With both of them smelling same they will be much comfortable with each other. And you better be prepared for the worst case. Prepare a blanket or a water bucket, so you can break up a fight if there were any fight.
Then you can let your old cat to wander around your new cat. But, until you are pretty sure that they will not fight, keep an eye on them. Some get along quicker while others take months. In rare cases, they newer get along. But they will tolerate each other. But I know, for many homes two cats are better than one. Cats must have cat friends too.
