It is hard to say what's going on here. I would definitely not allow unsupervised visits at all until the kitten is bigger or until this behavior stops.

Because of the vast difference in size the potential is there for the cat to injure the kitten even unintentionally. Also toms have it sort of hard-wired into them to kill kittens, although most neutered toms don't ever act on it.

I would recommend a consultation with an animal behaviorist. Ask your vet to refer you to one in your area. Someone who is well-versed in feline behavior and who can come watch the two cats intereact will be the safest bet against anything bad happening.
