Hi all, SORRY.... to bother you all again with this subject.
Yesterday afternoon Tia was upstairs fast asleep, so i went in with Diego to spend some time with him, and give him a cuddle, he is soooo affectionate
and after playing with him he curled up on my lap and went to sleep, i put him in his bed, and tried so sneek out but he jumped staight up purring and wanting me to pick him up again(which i did) anyway long story made a bit shorter, i took him in the lounge and he laid on my lap and went back to sleep.
Tia came down half hour later, jumped on the sofa, sniffed Diego a few times (this was their first proper contact) then went up on her bed had a wash and went to sleep, we were pleased as we thought it had gone really well.
This is the bit i need advise on, later on in the evening we got Diego out again, this time he was playing, and charging about, Tia came in the room,
Diego went straight up to greet her, rubbing his head on her padderling the ground and purring, Tia was a little unshore, then Diego started to play with her, and this is when it went all wrong, she chased him around all puffed up, and when she got hold of him she laid on him, pinning him to the ground, she was putting her mouth round the back of his neck( No pearced
skin) it all seemed very aggresive, this continued for about ten minuites with us telling her when things seemed to get out of hand, i then called time and picked him up taking him back to his room, giving him a cuddle of reasurance.
Is this normal or does Tia look at Diego as prey
:shock:

Hi Nikki - Lubo does this with the kittens. It did start off a bit rough but now he is much more gentle. The 2 kitties also play with each other in the same way. Just keep an eye on the extent of the agresssion - should reduce hopefully.

Our girls do this quite often.....Its a form of playing, but after a few minutes one of them normally has had enough and starts to get a bit aggressive.

They only need to be told once then they all scatter to cool off!


Atleast they can bear to be in the same room now anyways.....so your doing something right. :wink:

Gotta say.....My very dear friend Jackie is "Purebliss Bengals" :wink:


I only get to bump into her at shows, but everytime I do It's a real pleasure.....she also breeds the most beautiful blues I have ever seen.

She brought a young blue marbled girl to a show once and it was the most adorable kitten ever.....and also the calmest bengal I've seen at a show. (took everything in her stride....no panic-mode at all).

I've got pics of her somewhere!
