Cats are funny at times....often they like to be the sniffer, but not the sniffee! What is different here is that this is a "new behavior" for Rocky, especially since he usually keeps to himself and hasn't shown interest to the extent of following Lixsy around. What I do know about cats is that they have a very high ability to smell different scents (almost as well as a dog). Dogs can detect an odor of cancer in people. So maybe Lixsy is giving off a different scent. Most cats are very good at picking up when it's owner is sick or unwell, and whether it's a scent or a vibe, don't really know, but for last few days I'm having painful back spasms, and both my cats are even more cuddly than usual. Have you noticed anything that may be "off" with Lixsy---change in bowel movements, change in her attitude (her reaction to Rocky is perfectly normal when he sniffed her bottom), eating habits, amount she eats or sleeps or activity levels? If something has changed significantly with her, then a trip to her vet for a checkup may be a good idea.
