Older cat is licking kittens bum

I caught Gosha my 5 y.o. licking my 3 months olds booty. I googled and didn't find anything substantial and I feel emberassed calling vet with such question. Do you guys know what would it mean? My kitten is totally takes over Gosha, he takes his lap time, his toys, his food and now made Gosha lick his butt? I feel so bad for Gosha, kitten just riding him lol He is adorable though, we all are his slaves.

Cats groom each other. In all places. Mine do that all the time!

Mother cats clean their kittens' bottoms - maybe Gosha is feeling parental.

Maby I was wrong giving him girly sound name, he is so soft and now he thinks he is a mom? Gosha is a pet name for Gregory in Russian, kind of like Sasha for Alexander, but everyone thinks it's a girls name.

I saw cats groom each other before but I never seen Gosha grooming kitten before in other places and they don't lay together like other cats do. Rasta the kitten however follows Gosha everywhere and copies everything Gosha does. This is as close as they get

I wouldn't worry about it. Cats will do that especially to a kitten. Kitty's adorable by the way. I would only worry if Gosha were licking excessively and making his bum sore with his rough tongue.

Oh gracious, all of my kitties are guilty of doing this. It's all part of grooming each other. As long as the groomee doesn't mind the groomer doing it then you shouldn't either. Trust me....they'll let the groomer know if they're not wanting it to happen!

Gosha sounds like a male name to me, but I'm pretty familiar with Russian names, so maybe that's why.

In my opinion, if your adult cat is willing to help raise the kitten, absolutely take him up on the offer!
