Introducing New Puppy to Kitten

My husband and I rescued a kitten almost a month ago. She got along with our roommate's cats. We ended up with a puppy recently, and our kitten does not like her at all. The puppy loves the kitten and just wants to play with her. The nicest we can get the kitten to be is if we have one pet on each end of couch. It has been almost a week. I was wondering if there was a way I could help them get along. My 2-year old likes to hold the kitten and she has scratched him hissing and swatting at the dog.

A week is not long. The kitten has to get used to all the human and animal scents. Give her time.

This will take a little more time but it may be a good idea to keep them apart for a while (maybe change rooms everyday but leave the sleeping things behind) especially if the kitten is scratching or biting.
Patience is a good thing here and not a forced "get along" fast approach.

I found my first cat thrown in the gutter on the side of the road. I rescued him and brought him home. A few weeks later we took a puppy from a friend. It took 3 weeks for the two animals to adjust.

Once they adjusted it was so cute. The cat would go out in the yard and drink from the dog's bowl or eat from his food dish.

Give them time. They will become good friends. The two are still very young and they will become playmates soon.
