I stayed home from work on Monday because I was sick. I observed our younger cat, Chester, sleeping on the couch. Willis jumped up with him and snuggled in next to him. I only see this happen rarely and it always tends to be on weekends or on days off during the day. Willis started cleaning Chester and he seemed to be enjoying it. Part way through the cleaning Willis bites Chesters neck...the fleshy part right under his chin. Of course Chester does not appreciate this and all **** breaks loose. This seems to happen quite often during cleaning sessions. Why does Willis have to bite him like that? Is it a dominance thing? They play fight quite a bit but they have no troubles eating from the same dish and laying on the couch together (not necessarily touching). They are not super snuggly with each other but they don't hate each other. I just wish they didn't scuffle so much and wish they could have a nice cleaning session that doesn't turn ugly.
Anyone else observe this behavior in their cats?
