|The kitten is only 4 weeks old? Are you bottle feeding him? Kittens are not normally weaned until 8 weeks.
A kitten that young, should absolutly, be kept away from the other kitty, especially if the kitty is aggressive, which is normal, each kitty reacts different to new kittens/cats.
Your resident kitty is pissed, cause there is a new kitten in the household, with new/different smells, and she is taking it out on you, its just like domestic violence. The person is mad about something else, and takes it out on the closest person, even if its someone he loves, also know as anger management issues.
I brought my kittens home at 8 weeks, they were shut in the bedroom a good month, before I let them interact with the other cats, well, except for Bump, because he is so very laid back. He lay right down, and they tried to nurse him, and he just lay there and let them. But he was never let in there, when I was not home, for a good month.
