How can I tell the difference between playing & fighting? What do I look for? Do I stop it if they are fighting? How do I handle it?

But as of this morning, they were chasing each other and jumping all over one another. This defies typical cat introduction behavior so I'm expecting a messy house when i get home. But watch for sounds and figity behavior. Definately don't let them fight. Remove one into another room to let them calm down.
