Hellooo! Im the one Susan (Rosiemac) mentioned earlier... I'll give you my take on things...
When we brought Nismo into our home (on Monday) Sleeves was unsure so he did a lot of smelling and licking and then he started trying to beat her up (ok don't worry when I say this, read the rest of my post
) he would grab hold of her and bite her and kick her, slap her. This horrified me and I begun to think we may have made the wrong decision in getting a new kitten. But then she started fighting back and now she gives as good as she gets so he has started backing off.
Its now Thursday and I have the best pictures ever
to post on this site once I can get them onto my computer. He licks her, kisses her rubs on her and plays with her.
I'm still not leaving them alone for a long time because Id hate for something to happen but Im so happy we got this little baby.
Last night she was sleeping and he obviously decided she needed a bath, so was cleaning her and he wanted to get to her tummy so was trying to bite her neck (like a mother cat would do) to pick her up and move her. Ive never seen anything so adorable in my life.
This morning they were playing and I heard hissing (her) so ran through and he had her pinned to the ground and was biting her. I pulled them apart and they ran away from each other, Sleeves then lay down to 'chill out' and Nismo ran up to him and slapped him in the face so he ran after her and they were rolling around together on the floor. If he was hurting her then she wouldn't come back for more would she...
I also woke up this morning with Sleeves wrapped around my head, lying on my pillow and Nismo under the covers lying between Mark and I.
Definately get a buddy for your baby if you battle on with it then you will soon reep the benefits, and having 2 weeks off to 'supervise' is the perfect time http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71753
