I know this subject has been touched on somewhat and I just recently read about an older male cat beginning to, shall we say, become romantic. My one 8 month old male kitty is becoming quite romantic with my other 8 month old male. Both are neutered. The "romantic" one was neutered at 8 weeks old at the Humane Society where we got him and the other kitty was neutered at 6 months old. He is totally not interested and wiggles away but doesn't seem upset. At first I thought it was just play as they do get a long very well. They play, wrestle, chase each other, snuggle and groom each other. This new behavior, which has increased this past week, consists of constant "trilling" and assuming the position and so on. Nobody seems too bothered by it. I'm really just wondering if this is normal and if this is just a stage. I'm hoping no more behaviors such as spraying come out of this. Hoepfully it won't get worse and cause a problem. I have a dog who was fixed as a puppy and once in awhile seems to have "feelings" but he doesn't go quite as far as our kitty. Thanks!
