It can take time for them to become comfortable with each other. At first I would allow them to interact through a closed door where they are not able to get at each other. If this goes well a few times then you can slowly start to let them see each other. If your older cat is the aggressor then you can try to put a harness and leash on him. This will allow you to control him at a distance so that he can’t claw or bite at you. If they do well then you can slowly increase the amount of time that they are together.

They can give you advice that is more specific to your individual cats.
