I have begun to realize that Sasha is a fantastic older brother to little Saba, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced their older/younger kitties doing this same thing? Sasha is 13 and Saba is about a year (rescue-adopted). For example, Sasha will jump on the bed in the morning to wake me for breakfast and if Saba is still sleeping up by my head, he will walk over to her, bump noses, and wash her face. It's so cute! But then after washing her, he will quiver his gums, squint or hiss, and make a chirp sound to her, as if to reprimand her that she's not being clean enough! He also seems to correct her if she touches his blanket, he'll shoot up a paw without claws, like a stop sign! When he comes in from the outdoors, Saba used to pounce on him with happiness. Sasha would raise his paw or reprimand her verbally, and now she approaches him and politely bumps noses like a little lady and he seems to approve. Can anyone else share some of your experiences or observations about an older sibling correcting a younger one??
