    Neither, they're just checking each other out.

    Cats do have pecking order fights. When they have them, it's pretty quick & over.

    Sniffing is not the fight.

    As Wally Cleaver used to say when he didn't know an answer:
    "Search me". hahaha
    I will watch this thread as I'm always trying in vain to figure my cats out :)
