A couple of videos of my cats getting rowdy. Got into an argument with my friend about whether they are just rough housing or if they're fighting For Real(tm)

Figured I would ask a 3rd party!


That is totally playing. Ours can get really rough. The fact the one was bearing its tummy also shows it was not feeling fully threatened.

When my nakeds were younger, they would play rough like that too. As long as they're not "screaming" and really biting each other, I would say it's fine. And if they do get some little wounds/scratches hydrogel can help.

Nothing really to update. This was always more about my friend being skittish about letting critters rough-house than any concern of mine. My little skin goblins have lived together for 4 years before I came into their lives, and so while there is minor concern that the new environment would lead to them sharing territory less, it hasn't really been a concern -- Glomp is usually the one getting up in Dora's business, but that's mostly because he's bored, I think.

Glomp is primarily food motivated, and he's been having lots of gut issues, because the little f****r will try to eat anything, so he hasn't had the energy to be rambunctious lately.

Oh, i guess the one update is that my friend refuses to believe any of us and keeps insisting that the "good little boys and girls shouldn't fight" and keeps trying to break them up. I've had to lay down some boundaries about how I don't want her to be parenting my cats with a different set of rules than I raise them by, and she threw a bit of a snitfit about it all.
