I have this other thread running http://thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150022 but wanted to understand better how cats/kittens interact, as I've never owned two cats before. My little kitten Mylo (10-12 week old male) keeps getting jumped on and pinned by Millie (18-month old female). I thought at first it was quite violent and it usually is for about 30 seconds, however once Millie has him pinned she just holds him down and licks him. Mylo initially meows and tries to get away, but then Millie gets him again and eventually he submits. There isn't really any growling or hissing anymore from either of them, but I don't know if this is good or bad behaviour. Should I try and step in and stop Millie or should I just let them be. I haven't seen any signs of physical wounds and Millie eventually lets him go. Can anyone explain this behaviour, is it just Millie being dominant and are there likely to be any long term emotional scars for Mylo?
