    Most mammals do that. Usually it's for identification. Everyone's butt has a different smell, I guess.

    I've caught her pulling his fur rightbefore she mounts him and then I step in and break it up. She doesn'tdo it often thank goodness.

    As soon as I see the fur pulling, I do step in as well. Well,my foot literally steps in. Star has been known tobite. Don't think Shorty would, but Star would.Shorty just looks at me afterwards with the MOST embarrassed look inhis eyes. He is SO owned! heeheee

    Koda would never bite but boy she getsmad at just sits there glaring at me like How dare I step in betweenher and her man. Norman always looks relieved but runs over and startsgrooming her trying to make peace. Norman is so owned too so tellShorty he's not alone.

    Boy the stories these two could share with each other over a bottle of vanilla water.:p
