I don't know what it is about Pixel, but kittens like to wrestle, chew on, tail-chase, jump on, and jump over him. I'm not sure if Pixel likes it or hates it - he makes weird whiny meows with some intermittent hissing, but when I look over, Clinch is on his back pawing up, and Pixel is sitting or standing over him, batting back. When Pixel gets a chance, he'll hold Clinch's head down and lick his head or in his ears. I call it "forcible grooming." Occasionally there's also some cuddling. It's a very odd relationship.
It's hard to catch some of it in pictures, but I've been partially successful.
Here's some tail chasing from 07/31/2015:
From another angle:
You know, if Pixel wouldn't twitch his tail, Clinchfield wouldn't try to catch and bite it.
I was able to catch actual wrestling on 10/22/2015, but it's a bit blurry:
We call this Neko-Koneko (kitten on cat):
I don't have any pictures yet of Pixel grooming Clinch, but I do have one of Clinch digging for gold in Pixel's ear:
Pixel didn't seem to mind, so I let it continue. Clinch did this for about five minutes until he started sneezing.
Every once in a while we catch them cuddling. I really like that, so I take lots of pictures, and that's where we'll end today's report:
And my personal favorite so far:
Come back tomorrow for a really quick archive report on Clinch's DIY bed.
