Kitten teaching older Cat new tricks?

Anyone else had this?

i'm quite amused by my two cats.

TubbyTabby came from a loving home, raised with her mum, siblings and the family dog. She came grumpy, bitey/scratchy and otherwise sedate. No bringing presents, no adventurous jumping.. very laid back kitty as long as you didn't touch her for long. She's 2.

Batcat was a stray, bought off the street into a local rescue as a baby with 1 sibling. He's bomb proof. He's climbed my curtains, jumped on shelves.. done the walk of death along my curtain rail, walked along my fence and jumped onto my one story flat roof above my kitchen, and also bought me gifts, frogs currently being the creature of choice, i have to put them in the bin (the dead ones) or back in the pond (the live ones) almost daily. (he's 11mo)

Since he arrived TT has mellowed, she no longer bites or scratches, she actually says hello to people and loves fuss (i used to have to warn people not to touch as she bit), but she's also suddenly started doing the daredevil jumping after watching Batcat doing it a couple of times, and for the first time today, bought me a present (a butterfly she caught).

Its like having Batcat has completely changed her, as if he's taught her how to cat.

Anyone else had this?

I can't quite see it clearly - you have one cat, two cats, both young, you say? I think we need evidence, too...

Sounds like he's definitely helped her be more cat
