Male nursing male!

After my male adult cat CB got used to the new male kitten, he started allowing him to suck on his teets. The kitten is now 5 months old and he is still doing it! They both love it and you can hear the two of them purr a mile away! I have an adult female cat but he has never tried it with her! Does anyone know why they do this?

hi,  i have male cats in the house (both neutered & not) and they do this too.  i think it's just a loving gesture between, and it hasn't caused any conflict here.  they've been doing this for quite some time, so i wouldn't worry.

It's not that unusual. I've had males do this as well. Cats seem to be a little more casual about gender issues than humans. Tell CB and kitten to stay happy and keep chasing that Rainbow! :)
