Hi Cat Lover
The killing of ghekos is quite normal behaviour for cats and he may be doing it for fun or to get your attention, so ignore it completely. Keeping the cats separated is only so that they can learn to get along and so that the older one doesn't feel that his territory is invaded all at once, but as soon as they seem to be ok together you can leave them together. You should have your kitten sterilized before 6 months to prevent unwanted kittens. It's easiest to feed the kitten commercial kitten food only. A good quality dry kitten pellet is best. Read on the packet how much to give the kitten according to age and weight and then divide the daily food allowance by 4 times a day. You should not feed anything else, especially milk and raw egg. If you want to spoil him you can add a spoon of tinned kitten food every now and then. You can add about 10% of the daily allowance of his food per day if he seems hungry and make sure he has been dewormed. To stop him "begging" you can close him out of your dining area or put him in his crate to eat. Older cats can be sprayed with citrnella solution to deter them from tabletops.
