Hi Amy. Those kitties look so comfy and sweet together❣️I didn’t want to pop right in because I’m not a cat expert and I didn’t want to stear you wrong.
First thing I’d want to make sure the 3 year old is okay physically. With boys I always worry about the urinary tract when I hear consistent meowing. If you know that’s not an issue I’d say the age difference and how much a 6 month old kitten still wants to play is both amusing and irritating to your older boy. Sometimes he’s into it and other times he’s telling him to back off. Not much difference than us right?😁 They can be tiring to say the least! Your 3 yr old needs to be the boss and I think he’s telling jr just that. If Jr doesn’t want to respect that than you may have to help out by distracting him. Divert his play to you or a toy. Separate them for a little break and if you have a rowdy teenager and he doesn’t want to calm down tell him ‘NO’ and give him a squirt of water with a squirt bottle. He’ll learn what ‘NO’ means and they remember the sound the bottle makes right before the water lands. I want to add you did a wonderful thing by adopting these babies and in adopting another for companionship for the first boy❣️,,,,,
Lynn, Tankie’s mom, forever
