    No, I count myself lucky that they don't tear each others faces off!

    No, not for the want of trying on Nancy's part but Claude likes to keep himself to himself.

    Willow and Holly will groom whoever is in reach, in fact if Willow is asleep in the hammock. quite often Rowan will go and sit on the platform next to it and keep headbutting her until she grooms him :lol:

    Rowan does very occassionally - I caught him grooming Blossom last night :eek:

    Blossom will give a lick to whichever cat happens to be passing, but doesnt settle down for full on grooming sessions (unless she is being groomed!)

    Cedar grooms who ever is near for about 30 seconds before biting them to get them out of wherever it is he wants to sleep - he's so naughty :lol:

    Cedar and Blossom mainly like to groom us hoomins though :D

    That's just about the same here too!!!!

    Charlie wants to groom Byron, desperately (the poor sweetheart), but Byron will only tolerate it for a moment before he 'dominates' the grooming session and starts grooming him instead... and then 10 seconds later he starts nibbling Charlie as opposed to grooming and Charlie usually whacks him cause it hurts!!! :cryin:

    Siiiigh... maybe someday there will be peace and snuggling in the house!!!

    Walter and Frank groom each other although this can sometimes lead to a mad dash around the house with them chasing each other!

    Bugsy grooms Heimdall, particularly if Heimdall is sitting where he wants to. It looks like he is saying "Please Heimdall, please, please, I am only little, please move", and he can keep it up for ever. Heimdall grooms Bugsy as well, but he will crack first and move off, leaving a very smug Bugs and that makes it all a bit grudging.

    Aelfred will groom Heimdall if he wants to start a fight. Takes about three licks before Heimdall hisses at him to say enough and then Aelfred will leap on him.

    All of the above apply when the lickee is lying down. All of them lick each other a couple of times as greeting, and that doesn't seem to have the same effect. Bugsy is the only ones that grooms us - Heimdall and Aelfred both headbut us until we groom them.

    Tiberius only grooms when he wants one of the others to move! And being licked by him is like being licked by a big soggy brush :p

    Ezri will groom McCoy before she sleeps beside him. She will also groom the BF and even occasionally me :)

    McCoy will give a few licks and then battle commences!

    Sadly no other cats for Willow to groom (yet!)
    A few years ago when we had 3 cats and a dog the cats used to groom each other and the dog. The dog would just lie there and enjoy , she never returned the favour.

    Spartan grooms Scipio and he often asks her to do it, very cute to watch! She grooms us too, and Scipio gives us a little lick every now and again!
