The honeymoon is over

Ever since he got here as a scrawny little wayward kitten, the older Jellicles have been pretty much giving Freeway the run of the house, and they range anywhere from joining in, to tolerating, his antics.

But, I think his "amnesty period" is finally over. Just a minute ago, he was clinging to Trace Tumblebrutus, nipping at his ears and bunny kicking his back. Trace rolled over and rolled Freeway off, then he easily rolled back into place to try to finish his nap. Not to be happening, as Freeway pounced onto his back again.

This time, Trace sat up and did the tail swishing, standoff thing with Freeway, which has always been part of their game. But this time, it turned out differently. Trace reached way, way back down into the lower south 40 of his personal space, balled his paw into one of those little feline fists, and swatted Freeway butt over brain-bucket clear into the back bathroom.

Not to be daunted, Freeway came bouncing right back out, but this time, giving Trace a good wide berth.

They are already together again, with Trace cleaning the kid's ears. But I think that Freeway may have learned a little something about limits today

Freeway is growing up, and it is time for him learn how to get along in the colony. The senior members need their nap time, and shouldn't be be disturbed by young'uns.

A wise vet encouraged me to let out my kittens I was fostering with the older cats since they teach the "younguns" kitty manners and boundaries.

Looks like the process has started in your tribe! Good job Trace Tumblebrutus.
