Cat getting "affectionate" with kitten
My 3 year old male, Tiger, has been doing something.....interesting lately. We have recently brought home a 3 month old male kitten, Garfield, who has become buddies with Tiger as far as we can tell. My husband let me know today that he saw Tiger "humping" Garfield. I wondered if it looked like he was just playing with Garfield, but my husband was certain Tiger was getting "affectionate".
I know that dogs will show dominance over other dogs by doing this, but I had never heard of it in cats.
Is this something that just happens and do we need to stop the behavior?
Has anyone else seen this happen?
I would love to get some feedback. Thanks for the thoughts!
