Why does my cat love his brother?
I have an 11 year old black cat. Throughout his life hes had younger siblings. He has hated each and every one of them. Totally will not get along at all, refuses to be in the same room with them. I figured it was a territorial thing, that and the fact that his siblings were all male. Well, for 2 years hes been an only child. When I introduced his new baby brother, he hated him like all the others... but after a month he LOVES him! Whats the deal? Why is this cat so special?
Basically they'll sleep together, touching, even sometimes sleep in the same basket. I even see them giving each other baths! I see them hug and rub up against each other, but mostly they just lick each other. I could pick up the now 2 year old cat and place him infront of the 11 year old, and he'll just immediately start to licking.
Anyone know why on earth, out of all the cats hes lived with, he not only tolerates this one, but love him?
