Play and serious

Is it easy to tell the difference between play fighting and serious fighting. Millie and Cleveland are chasing each otehr about and he'll have a bop at her (no claws) and she'll do the same. There will be an occasional growl when someone has had enough. Is this just playing about or is it dangerous to them? I was worried someone would get hurt.

Im pretty sure they are just playing.The growling,is probably just something along the lines of "I don't want to play anymore".I doubt they will hurt each other.

Simone

Simone will hiss at Snowball sometimes when she's had enough. Other times he likes to play rough with her and she will screech like cats do. Usually then we get their attention and they stop just like that. LOL!

I'd say serious fighting would be when they just attack each other and don't let up even with intervention (clapping your hands, raising your voice). Where the hair is flying and they look like they're having an all out kitty war. Lots of screaming and growling....

I have to say that when it's "real" fighting, you'll know about it! They'll be yelping and screeching and growling and visibly trying to hurt each other.

Thats a relief then they seem to be enjoying each others comapny so much. He follows her everywhere and loves sniffing her. I had to laugh today as she went to her litter box and he sat beside her, sniffing her ears as she used it. No privacy!!

Its so wonderful to hear Millie and Cleavland are getting on so well. I had a conversation with a friend recently about adopting an adult cat because her adult cat is lonely since their dog passed on. This is such a good example of how it can be a sucess,
