How to Distance Myself from FIL???

Hi! Short intro, my FIL left the family when my husband was 5. He's always been a cold + distant father. I'm new to the family + have noticed that my FIL attaches himself to my SIL + myself. It's really weird. Whenever he comes to visit it's as if he'd rather visit with his daughter-in-laws as opposed to his own sons. My SIL has been in the family for over 20 years + has begrudgingly accepted (or not) this "relationship" but I refuse! He'll call me + email me - not his own son! He is really hard to be around, narcissitic, critical, selfish + really unaware of how much he puts others out - he has also said some inappropriate remarks to me + my SIL. I've been trying to establish some distance (for example if he calls my phone I don't answer + then I have my husband call him back) because I don't want to be in the position that my SIL has been in. Any advice, it'd be greatly appreciated!
