|Miles, our 3 yr. old male cat and Pixel, our 3.5 month kitten have been together just under 2 months and it is going much better than we anticipated. There is mutual grooming and a lot of wrestling and play fighting but nothing scary.
However, the only problem that persists is that Miles will come up behind Pixel while Pixel is eating and bite his neck. He seems to only do this when Pixel is eating and though I understand it is a dominance issue, can anyone think of why it's only when Pixel is vulnerable and eating? Pixel, the kitten is usually the bully and they don't share food so it's not a jealousy issue with food. Pixel cries out in pain when Miles bites him and we step in to separate.
Any thoughts appreciated! Thank you!
