Hi sounds to me not like fighting but playing.

Cat fights are normally accompanied by growling hissing and waling. if this is not happening then it is more than likely play. believe me cat play can look pretty viscous to us but its all just play bites etc. I have two 8 month cats and they play like this all day, there are never any wounds at all.

As long as there are no wounds i really would not worry, it is all part of the learning process.

as for the food issue, it is not advisable to feed a cat normal tuna etc from a can it does not contain all the nutrients they need and can harm there health in the long run. please see my web page for more information on this

cats like their food to be smelly so make sure that any food given is not straight from the fridge as this will not smell enough to entice them. my web pages about cat food should be able to help you with your cats food issue.

best wishes Kate
