Odd behavior -- is it normal??
Okay, well this is a bit awkward but I do want to know what is going on, so here goes. I have two non-neutered 8-month old kittens. They are brothers. They will be getting neutered in the next few weeks. The only reason I waited is because they were born to a homeless mother, and I personally had the four siblings neutered before adopting them out to very good homes. Anyway, I kept the two boys, because one had a very strong bond toward me, and the other male kitten, was his near look-alike brother, so I didn't have the heart to break up this "pair."
Well, recently, I have noticed very uncomfortable scenes between the two. I guess I should just say it: when they are grooming each other and cuddling, one ofte grooms the other's genital area -- it almost looks like oral sex is being performed! Is this normal? I realize they are mature cats and could copulate. But oral sex-type behavvior between male cats? Has anyone else ever witnessed this? What is up with this!!?? Is it normal? Should I just ignore? Help ... (no joke). Other than this behavior, they seem very healthy. Not that this is unhealthy, per se, but .... it's different.

Well I can honestly say I have never seen this but I would say that it probably looks worse than it is. I.e it is probably only grooming and nothing more as I don't think cats do oral sex.
I would say not to worry about this and once they have been neutered I'm sure things will calm down anyway.
