Now that my Kitty's have gotten to know each other better they've started playing or at least I hope thats what this is. Cinnamon (11 month) is wrapping her little paws around Bell's (9 weeks now) little middle and starts biting at her neck and batting her around Bell just kinda falls over and lets her do it she doesn't try to play back much but if cinnamon walks away Bell does try to follow. I'm assuming they are just playing since Bell isn't afraid of Cinnamon and never cries when this is going on. I was just wondering If this play is to rough for Bell She's still a little thin and pretty small (but we're working on that now that now that the vet has wormed her) I don't want to intervene to much between the two because I'm hoping Cinnamon will be able to teach Bell the things her mother didn't have a chance to and that I can not. She's already learned some from Cinnamon when I brought her home she never cleaned herself or played with toys or even used the little box. But now after watching cinnamon do these things a tie or two she's using her litter like she should, She's eating and drinking from a dish, and trying her best to play with the toys and has started grooming herself (with cinnamons help who sometimes decides that she's not doing it fast enough so she gives her a hand). So I really don't want to step in and interrupt them if everything is all well and good. They seems to be bonding little by little and I would like to see that continue. But I don't want Cinnamon to get to rough with Bell and accidentally hurt her. I separate them when I'm not home (bell has a comfortable little room in our bathroom that she doesn't seem to complain about.) and only let them together when I am able to supervise but was wondering if this kind of play is okay? and when to intervene if I need to? I've never had two Cats at once before so Kinda new to this stuff.
