You must keep your cat separated from the kitten. The URI in animals holds the same principal as in humans. It’s airborne, and will be passed by coming in contact with the infected kitten. Also, wash your hands every time you handle the kitten. You can pass the illness to your other cat if you have the germs on your hands or clothes, then go to handle the healthy cat.
Keep a close eye on your adult cat to see if any symptoms pop up.

    The other posters are correct – keep your older cat separated from your younger cat. You can also give both of your cats a few doses daily of Respiratory Aid, which is a herbal formula that treats the symptoms of respiratory infections in cats. It will help boost their immune systems as well so that your younger cat will get better faster and your older cat will be able to fight off the respiratory infection before it starts. Here’s where I buy it from – http://www.petwellbeing.com/products/cat-cough
