Sorry for the poor quality I will try and get a better one tomorrow. I just wanted some quick advice as you can see in the video they are play fighting but it gets to the stage where the "weaker" kitten will cry out. Should I stop it and if so how?

Heck no, they're not even meowing. I wouldn't stop until you hear the real low toned meow. That meow is trouble.
:LOL: okay maybe I'm being alittle over cautious here. ((spot the newbie)))

Seriously though he is kinda meowing you just cant hear it very well on this video because of my very happy baby chatting in the background :BigSmile:

Oh my the first time I watched I thought your happy baby was a screaming sphynx:LOL::LOL::LOL:
It looks like the 2 of them are having fun. so as long as neither of them hide and don't come out or someone draws blood, let them play it is good for them. and the baby seems to love to watch.:ThumbsUp:

Snuffie weights about 12 lbs and is over a year old and poor SoBe is only 16.5 weeks old now. Her and Snuffie do this same play every day!! Biting ears and heels...its look awfully painful but no one ever MEOWS or growls and there hasn't been any broken skin yet. Which I'm very surprised with. Usually when I do think they are getting rough I'll throw a toy and they take chase and its over.
If someone starts meowing while someone is biting them then I'd intercept. Other wise I think your good.


And yes,,when the video first started I thought your lil baby was a hollaring kitty!!! lol Too funny.

Looks like they're having a good time and training themselves to be future fearless hunters! I wouldn't break them up unless one of them started growling. Growling means "I'm seriously mad and this isn't fun anymore." But squealing and yowling are normal for this.

So, sphynx mama, are you telling me (us) that you are new to the sphynx's and you got 2 sphynx babies at once? I have been dreaming about becoming a sphynx mommie, and I was thinking that 2 is better than 1. But I was scared about the whole "two kittens at once" thing. Is it as hard as I've been thinking it would be? :Dizzy:
