    Hi folks, my four year old Westie (archie) the love of my life is dominating my new male kitten. I have two kittens a male and female (sid and nancy) but he is only dominating Sid. By dominating I mean trying to hump him, I have tried to ignore this behaviour as I understand it is pretty normal. I lost my cat a few months ago so he has always been used to a cat in the house. He has no interest in the female kitten at all. I just a wee bit worried that the kitten could land up hurt with him being so small and having such small bones. The kitten does not seem fazed by this at all and treats it as a big chase me, chase me game. Should I be over worried? obviously I do tell Archie no. When they all tired they very happy to settle down together and the kittens try suckle from Archie. Any advice would be appreciated. Also I dont want to keep giving Archie a row as this is his home too. :)

    Hi, sorry I should have mentioned that Archie is not neutered, I have not had a reason to get him neutered. He does do this to some dogs that we meet on our walks but he is never nasty with it. I figured he is just trying to make his place in the household clear. When they are all tired they all lie together happily with the kittens trying to suckle from him and he tolerates this with no problems at all.
