What's normal behavior for a male cat around kittens? Our fosters are all nice and healthy, as are our adult cats (just got their yearly shots last week too!) so we've started to let them interact a little bit. Phoebe wants nothing to do with them but Escher seems to be "baby-sitting" them. He'll sit next to their cage when they're in there and watch them, right next to the cage. Yesterday, when the kittens were out playing on the cat tree, we let Escher in the room, he jumped up to the second level of the cat tree and when one of the kittens would come near, he'd start licking/grooming them. He'll gently wrestle with the 2 older ones, and is VERY sweet with the younger ones. Is this normal? Or is our male cat a little weird?
