ok so Mable and Booboo (my two girls) are together more and more often these days while we're around (i'm still cautious of turning my back on them after round two of the great fight) and they're getting on well. Mable treats Booboo like an older sister, always following her and generally being like her... and this is going ok although sometimes i think Booboo justs wants to be left alone..the thing is Mable has started to mount Booboo!!! i was quite shocked when she first did it... is this a attempt at the dominance thing??? or have i got a lady lover???
Mable always grooms Booboo for a good few minutes and then shoves her head under Booboo's chin and demands a lick back, (expecting the favour to be returned i should think) but Booboo isn't that interested...after a bit of head pushing they chill out, but now the mounting has started i'm not sure what to do??? Booboo doesn't run off, in fact she seems quite confused. They have both been spayed for over 4 months now? i can't understand why Mable is doing this? anyone heard of this before?
Well things are going ok.... although i was a little concerned the first day we let them do 'it' that Booboo would start mounting Mable aswell, but she didn't - phew. Booboo lets Mable mount her, and when we can we pet Booboo to ensure she's not too freaked out. So far so good. Unfortunately it looks as though Mable falls into the 'continuous mounter' catergory...as we have to pull her off!
The first time Mable mounted Booboo she almost went right over the top of Booboo's head!! which was actually quite funny.
I do feel a little sorry for Booboo having to endure this 'behaviour' but she's taking it on the shoulders.... (quite literally almost hehehe)
i thought i would add a recent picture as i have just learnt how to add them to my posts! i know i'm a little slow... but i'm proud of myself x
