This video depicts a very rough play session between two bonded male cats. This video is play and NOT aggression. I create these to educate cat parents who might otherwise think their cats are fighting. Male cats like to engage in rough play well into their senior years, females do not engage like this nearly as much. Always good to adopt a pair of bonded males so that they can enjoy each other and have an outlet for this style of play.
normal cat play
Davis and Parker show how rough normal cat play behavior can be. These cats are NOT fighting. When cats play they are practicing their killing blows on each other. It can look scary, but you must take into account their relationship, body language, and the ability to spar and diffuse without malicious intent.
This is NORMAL cat play! This is NOT aggression. Note how mutual it is, no growling, no hissing, though that can also be normal and both keep coming back for more! Cats play rough and this is good and appropriate. They need to do this to each other and not to human hands and feet. #twoarebetterthanone
