Any sugestions?

post #1 of 7

Hi everyone, I have recently adopted a young kitten her name is jasmine, she is now 6mnths old,I also have two other cats one male, and a 2yr old female over the last month or so I have noticed jasmine has started to groom, and clean the other female she tends to do this when sasha my 2yr old is sleeping sasha lets her do this for a while, then she starts to become adgitated and they both start to `play fight` is this normal behaviour? Jasmine is not yet spayed as here in England the vets will not recommend spaying untill at least 6mnths depending on size and weight.

It's perfectly normal. Small cats often do a "play fight". Here Saladina, Moab and Planeta do that a lot. They are all young and two of them are brothers. Tom doesn't do it but she's 7 yrs old. They also groom each other while sleeping. Not something to worry.

Rowdy and Opie have done this, since I brought Rowdy home. Opie is a a dignified, laid-back 5-year-old and Rowdy is a rambunctious 2-year-old.

Opie will be snoozing, in a sunny spot and Rowdy will start with head and ear licking. Opie will reciprocate. Then, it becomes ear biting and the romp is on.

I look upon all of that running, jumping and wrestling as good exercise and entertainment for the cats AND myself.

Nothing brings out play in an adult cat better than a young kitten. There's something irresistable about them! Most of mine do this with the kittens, and some are 8-9 years old. It's not a young cat behavior, just a cat behavior.

It's quite normal.

My oldest, at 16, grooms the other 3 all the time. The youngest, at 6 months, will initiate play after her bath. She will groom the others when she really wants to play. We have several good wrestling matches a day around here, and no one ever gets hurt.
