We rescued a stray kitten (4months) and he has been living with us in our room for 3 months now due to concerns that he'd be FIV positive. But now that he is cleared of that, we are trying to introduce him to our older cat (6 years old). They are both male.
The older one knows the little one has been around. We have tried introducing them with the little one in a cage, but the big one reacts very aggressively. Now we are trying to let the little one out in the living room, but with every chance he gets, the older one will stalk him and chase him very aggressively.
I have read that it may take months for them to get adjusted. But I am wondering if I see the older one managing to pin the little one down and claw him, should I stop it or allow it to go on? So far we pull them apart whenever the older one corners him or chases him under the sofa where he can't reach him. Though he will wait right outside for him to come out and chase him again.
They hiss quite strongly and the older one gives him a glare that says "I'm gonna kill you."
