  • this is Teego
  • he's an eleven week old
  • brown and cream marbled Kitten
  • This is Freya
  • she's a six-year-old Bengal cat
  • Bengal cats are a domestic crossbreed
  • from the wild Asian Leopard Cat
  • and if the Daily Express is to be believed
  • she'll break through your catflap at night, and kill your own cats!
  • so this is the story of how the two cats managed their first week together
  • Teego spent his first three days in a separate room
  • with Freya sniffing at the door
  • he's a confident kitten
  • and unusually had no fears about exploring outside his room
  • he looks around this new area
  • and bounds down to explore further
  • Freya is watching from a safe place and is NOT impressed!
  • However, she shows no desire to leap down and attack this intruder!
  • but won't take her eyes off him
  • Teego barely notices this as there are far too many shiny things around for him to be bothered!
  • their first face-to-face meeting goes very well
  • Teego's playful bounce over
  • gives no hint that he
  • could possibly be a threat
  • Freya's still the boss, so she hisses, just to make her point
  • Teego carries on exploring
  • apparently unworried by Freya's hissing and growling
  • after a while,
  • Teego pops back upstairs
  • just to double-check his safe place is still there
  • Teego's boisterousness is always present and slippery floors can be awkward
  • Fortunately, all of Freya's signals and body language
  • are more nervous curiosity
  • rather than anything aggressive
  • she doesn't want to be friends just now but she's certainly interested and curious
  • as she'd simply leave the room if she really didn't like it
  • as youngsters do, he's always pushing his luck
  • he doesn't mean any harm
  • he's just overwhelmed by all the fun things to do down here
  • for a moment
  • he even forgets about Freya
  • Freya however, is still fascinated
  • the following day
  • Freya is still trying to teach him who's boss
  • when he strays too close without paying attention
  • naturally Teego takes this is an invitation to play
  • after a couple of days of this
  • we're starting to think that Freya might be enjoying this little brat a tiny bit
  • but she still wanders around grizzling
  • so nobody thinks she's gone soft
  • the next day shows further improvement
  • but Freya's not going to give in THAT easily!
  • Teego seems obsessed by Freya's tail
  • which will probably end up teaching him a lesson about curiosity, and cats.
  • both cats are now really showing signs of play
  • the fights are mainly friendly
  • but freya forgets her own strength every now and then
  • sometimes, little kittens just don't get the hint
  • that playtime is not always wanted
  • little Teego can't seem to understand how she doesn't want to wrestle ALL the time!
  • maybe a game of Queen of the castle will solve the problem?
  • another day passes, and even Freya is initiating play fights now!
  • As the days pass
  • the fights become more playful
  • and soon, even Freya realises that having a baby brother
  • could be the best thing in the world
