Why Do Cats Groom Each Other – MYSTERY SOLVED


we all know that cats love grooming
themselves but in this video we will tell you the four most common reasons
why cats groom each other hello cat lovers and welcome to our channel if you
are a cat addict just like us make sure to subscribe and to turn on the
notifications only here you will understand the feline world better one of
the most common reason why cats do this is because they like or even love each
other yes cats are capable of love and their
affection is not only directed to humans but also towards other four-legged
fellows cats can also display this behavior to all kinds of pets from
rabbits to dogs this behavior is meant to induce
relaxation and is used to bond and build relationships and the act of bonding
with other family members is pretty common in the animal kingdom the only
difference is the way in which animals of different species do it however one
thing is for sure they will never do this to a pet or human they don’t like
so next time you are wondering if your cat likes you or if she likes your
other cat watch out for this behavior and if she starts licking you don’t try
to stop her – social acceptance if you recently added a new cat to your
household you will probably notice that your resident cat will not be too happy
about that hisses growling and even fights are to
be expected in the beginning of their relationship however as time goes by
your resident cat will get used to the new addition and will stop seeing the
other cat as a threat so after you see your cats grooming each other for the
first time you can rest assure that your established cat has accepted the
new arrival 3 it feels good and it’s helpful cats have a hard time to clean
certain areas of their body like head neck or even ears and this is where a
helpful hand from their feline buddy can make wonders cats will not have to work
as hard to clean that areas and will get to relax while another cat gets this job
done for them think of it as going to a massage it isn’t anything more soothing
than a good old massage at the end of the day. right? plus this allows them to clean
an area which is kinda impossible for cats to clean on their own and I’m talking
about the inside of their ears now hold on I know this might sound
gross to you but cats use the same method to clean their butts sometimes
you just need to get accustomed to your roommate strange behavior and yep cats
need their inside of their ears to be clean just like we humans do so if your
cats clean each other’s ears this is also a win for you four
dominant or passive-aggressive behavior sometimes even if your cats like each
other one of them might use this innocent-looking behavior to assert its
dominance over your other cat in a 1998 study called the function of allogrooming in domestic cats which was performed in a group of cats living in
confinement it was determined that higher ranking animals groomed lower
ranking animals more often than the other way around and so allogrooming
in domestic cats may be a way of redirecting potential aggression in
situations in which this is too costly I must say that I noticed this behavior
in my cats too Marcel our orange one loves licking our grey cat for long
periods of time and afterwards almost always starts a play fights session
however I personally don’t think that our ginger cat is doing this out of
dominance he loves snuggles and grooming us and
after a while starts biting us even though this might be confused with
aggression cats use love bites all the time to express their feelings so I
think it’s more a matter of grooming and afterwards getting a little bit bored
