Hello all I have been reading all the things on introductions. I honestly just need encouragement. I have a one year old spayed female we got from the pound last year she is chonky and sweet and loud and likes to play with my dogs ( husky and poodle). I recently rescued a kitten from a car engine downtown. I have been doing scent swapping and some sight via long distance exposure. Basecamp is my room. Miso my older cat absolutely hates the kitten. She does fine with the scent swapping will smell the scent then just look at me like "ok cool now what". But if she sees the kitten she immediately growls and spits. The kitten does no growling and only lightly hissed once. I put up a baby gate and left my bedroom door open. I came around to miso stalking the kitten then growling. It made me uncomfortable so I shut the door. I'm scared she will attack the kitten. Miké is only about 7/8 weeks old. It's only been two weeks so I know it's way fast. The kitten has met and is used to both dogs by now and is playing up a storm in my room. I'd love to be able to let her explore the rest of the home. But the vibes I'm getting off miso are stalk to kill. What else can or should I do.
