yesterday I brought home a little foster kitten, Lilly, who is 6 weeks old. She is totally healthy spunky, playful.(some kids brought her to the shelter, they found her) She got a clean bill of health from the vet. We have a cat named Doodle, a 1 year old female, who has been trying desperately to play with our older cats so I thought she would like a kitten to play with, and get the kitten socialized as well. Well they took to each other immediately, playing insanely, you all know the game, it loooks like they are killing each other, but they like it. Then I noticed something really wierd: Doodle is acting like a mom, even tho she is spayed of course, grooming Lilly and Lilly would really like to nurse on her, but they arent doing that. What I did notice today, Doolde is stimulating her to pee! She has used her box very well, she is too old for that, is this behavior alright? I would hate to sepatate them, they seem to be happy. Every time I think I am an experienced foster, something new comes up!
