We will be getting a kitten soon we are approved to adopt one from a rescue. He looks promising he shows no fear of dogs and didn't hiss at a large cat in the Petco store, he has a calm demeanor but is still playful. He is intended to keep our younger cat occupied who does little things to try to annoy the older cats in house, like sniff them excessively, swat at them when they are resting, he tries to get them to play. He is annoying but not aggressive.
If you have had a multi-cat household with cats of all ages how did you teach the kitten to respect his or her elders? I've had kittens before but the cats were close in age.
