|We just brought home a kitten last week, and we're trying to start introductions. I read Kittens for Dummies before she came home, and I've been doing introductions w/ the kitten in the carrier. We have 2 other cats and a dog. I don't believe this kitten has ever seen a dog at all in her life, so it scares her. We bring the dog into her room and we take the kitten into his kennel. Last night we put her in the kennel w/ the dog while she was in her carrier and had her scooted pretty close to the dog w/out any hissing. Our oldest cat approached her carried but stayed about 1ft back. She seems curious, and she doesn't seem like she's gonna be aggressive or anything. Then Ocious (she's about 10) just walked straight up to the carrier not realizing that there was a kitten in there, and then after about 20 secs she hissed loud and ran away. She didn't swipe at the carrier or spit, so is that a good sign?
I just mainly need tips and advice and encouragement. Am I doing this right? Are my fiance and I on the right path?
