So my roommate recently adopted a 3 yr old neutered male. I have 2 spayed females ages 2 yrs and 9 months. Anyway, I used the guidelines for introducing new cats etc for the last 3 weeks. Last week we started gradually introducing the cats (one at a time) to each other. There was a little hissing and batting, but nothing too concerning. Then we brought all the cats in together once I was comfortable that they were not too aggressive. The 2 females mostly ignored the male and he was curious, but tended to back down if one of them hissed at him. However, the other day, I had them together for about 30 minutes and the male suddenly started attacking the kitten. I quickly separated them and put him back in his room. Now if I put them together the first thing he does is back her in a corner and try to attack! What should I do? He's very big comparatively, and I'm quite frustrated because everything seemed to be working well. I feel bad for him and don't want to keep him shut up all the time, but I also want to avoid injury to any of the cats. Any suggestions? Feliway?
