Life with Jim, Rene, and four cats (Benny, Sadie, Ringo, and Lucy)
Not to worry! We've had a few of those kind of posts too. It is a cute picture though!
Tucker! MOL!The mom caught "angel" Chumley (who was neutered of course) doing that a few times to Annie. The first time she saw it she screeched at him, "What are you doing?!" as if she didn't know. She just didn't realize neutered kitties (any animal) still would do that. :-D
I think they say it is a sign of dominance, but I don't know for sure. When we first got Ben (and don't tell him I told you this story) he stayed in our guest bedroom for a week to make sure he didn't bring home any illness from the shelter. I was concerned he might be lonely so I put a stuffed cat on the bed for some company. He loved that cat and used to cuddle and sleep with it, but he also used to "get friendly" with it too!!!
We have to admit that those things happen at our house too. Mom was weirded out by it when Floyd would do it to Kirzon (because they were both neutered) and asked the vet - he said it is normal for boys to do that to show dominance and not to worry. But mom still stops us when we do it (mainly because the recipient just hates it). Kirzon does it the most (he is the alpha after all) but Barney tries and just looks so ridculous. But don't worry - we have all seen it before (well, at least those of us with at least one boy cat).
My kitties used to get very friendly with each other too!! Awww! I think it's cute!! Hello there gorgeous Benny, Tucker and Sadie!! Take carex
heh heh.At our house one of Johnny's nicknames is "Sir Humpalot". Poor Scouty, he's the Humpalotee.
Tucker!! We've heard of brotherly love, but that's taking it to a whole new level!!
That is very cute! When Angel first came to live with us, she had not been spayed and went into heat. Wizard, although he was neutered, Would try to 'assist' her. It was funny and sad at the same tine@
Ha! None of my cats (Star and Comet included) have done that, but it looks pretty funny!
