We also had the kittens out Friday night and Sunday afternoon to play with Bug. He is a little rough with them (I think he is copying the treatment he gets from Junior). But the kittens are getting their teeth in, so Bug is in for a surprise when they start biting him back.
And speaking of Junior, he won't speak to me during the day right now. He has some eye gunk and I put an antibiotic cream in it and he is holding a grudge. But he is still checking up on everyone when we go to bed. Saturday night he was curled up by my shoulder - which was edging into Maestro's spot at the head of the bed. Maestro growled at Junior who just ignored him and went on purring. Can't blame him - he gets ignored when he growls at everyone else, so it makes sense that therefore growling is to be ignored. :)
