Peaceful Coexistence—Almost

September 15, 2003 was the day our two kittens started to warm up to each other. Shadow, the larger gray female, is just over seven months old, and Sunny, the tiny orange male, is just less than eight weeks old.

When we first brought Sunny home three days ago, Shadow hissed and growled vehemently in protest of the new arrival. Today she didn’t mind getting close to him; in fact, she attacked him several times, nibbling at him. Sunny growled and hissed back at her. Once he even bit back! Normally easygoing, this tiny bundle of fluff can be pretty feisty when he deems it necessary.
