Default Why do my kittens lick each others anus'?

It's weird, and I can't find any information on the internet about it. Sometimes one of the kittens (they're brothers) just starts to lick the others anus. I just wanted to know if anyone knew why they do this or if there's any extra information about it somewhere.

Default Wow.

Okay, at least tell me this, anyone. Has anyone else had this occurance with their cats? Is this really something that only my kittens do? If so, that's fine, but really odd.

Sounds like their just grooming eachother. Mother cats will do that too. Perfectly normal.

Default Oh well...

I can understand the grooming part, but it's like they like the taste or something. I mean, it's not just like they're licking it once or twice and then moving on the the next part of their cleaning, they lick it for like a minute, and really try to dig in with their tongues. I know it's gross, but that's what they do. Oh well, I don't know, maybe it IS just grooming, but if no one else has cats that do it to each other, then maybe it's just weird.

This is something mom cats do to their babies, so I'm guessing it's just in imitation of that.

Just grooming, for humans it's weird but for cats it's fine. I didn't do a seacrh no the subject because, erm, you know what I'd get
