My older male cat is licking my female baby kitty
I have a male neutered cat not quite a year old. I have gotten a female kitten, she is 9 weeks old. He play bites her, never hurts her.
Now he has started to lick her, especially on her bottom/anus. I find this odd. Is this normal?
Editor's note: It sounds to me, Nancy, like he's taking care of her. This is not as uncommon a thing for an older male cat to do for a kitten as you might think, especially if there's no mother cat around.
If he's licking her anus often, however, I'd make sure she's not having some problems.
