One kitten keeps hissing at the other?

While this doesn't happen daily over the past two or three weeks it has happened multiple times I keep noticing Tsuki bending her ears back to her head and hissing at Sera. It's kind of a shock to me with Tsuki being so much smaller (around 2 pounds) than her sister and usually being shy and mild mannered. I've got a video of the second time it happened



I started recording because it happened one time before than less than two minutes earlier. I also hear Tsuki seem to cry out randomly when doing what I think is playing. They usually get along so it's likely not a problem but still wanted to get some opinions.

The bite-then-groom is totally normal (and adorable). When I hear little squeaks, I don't interfere. If it turns into something more, I do, but that rarely happens.

Looks like normal kitty play to me. The brown tabby is more aggressive, but her cute bite and then licking afterward means she's not really mean. Kitties squeak from time to time during rough play which is all natural practice to catch and subdue a prey animal. A loud squeak=Ow! and lets the other kitty know a bite was too hard and it hurt. That how they learn to control their bite.
