How to get them to like each other?

Hi, recently I have bought a male kitten, I already had 2 sisters which are six years old. I introduced them to each other but whenever they see the kitten they hiss at him. They haven't taken a swipe at him at all. Also the sisters keep hiding on top of my wardrobe, how can i get them to like my kitten?

Time

A alow introduction, isolate the new kitten for a week where the others can only smell them.

Pay plenty of attention to the residents cats.

I thought these 2 were going to kill each other 30 days ago. Two females.

Actually, I think Dave's whole story will help.

You can do a further search on here or google "cat introductions" and get tons of info.
Basically it takes time and patience.
Good luck!

Re: How to get them to like each other?

I got my second cat 4 1/2 weeks ago. 2 weeks ago I thought I was going to have to give her back because they'd never be compatible and the attacks by the bigger cat were vicious.

Now they trot along next to each other. The only problem at this point is having 2 cats trying to sleep on me. It'a a good thing Mia is small or they wouldn't both fit.
