Jason, Yes, I understand what u mean -it can get scary when cats start wrestling. I got really scared myself when I first adopted 2 cats-always had an "only" cat growing up so I wasn't used to seeing how cats would interact with each other.
Actually, u're lucky that the kittens bonded to each other already when u adopted them. That makes it a lot easier on u!
When I first adopted Sunniday (died a few yrs ago) and found out he lived in a multi-cat household so I got Zebra to keep her company. Well, they were NOT happy about it at all. Sunniday kept hissing and growling her head off while Zebra hid behind the couch for a week. When I left my apt, I had to keep them in separate rooms for a week or so. I kept crying
because I was scared to leave them alone without me around. But after a week or so, Sunniday finally started tolerating Zebra. The first full day I was at work and the cats were together, I kept worrying about my cats - that they'd fight and get hurt but when I got home, they were doing fine. WHEW.
I know it can get really scary sometimes. As u get to know them better, u will be able to tell if they're mad or just playing. That's one thing I love about TCS- members here know how it feels and they have GREAT advice to share!!
keep us posted on how they are doing- especially when u come home from ur work the first day!
Who knows- they might have a GREAT adventure to tell u when u get home from work!
Sometimes I'd come home and find that my darn cats have gotten into something. Many times, I have found towels and/or blankets dragged from the bathroom all over the apt so I'd have to go pick up each towel/blanket on the floor all over the apt and refold them all.
