Cat Behaviour and Inbreeding
Kitten "Matata" and dam "Matahari" lazying in the house.
My cats "Matahari" and her kitten love sleeping and lazying on the chairs, bed or table for most of the day. Queen cat "Matahari" is now 2 1/2 years old while her kitten is 8 months. One thing I have observed is that cats love companionship of their own kind, especially if kept in pairs.
Prior to littering kittens, "Matahari" was a restless cat and would also "Meoow" loudly when in "heat". After delivery of the kittens and now with the company of one of her own kittens she has become aloof and less restless. Some active time is spent with the two cats chasing each other around the house, otherwise they are absolutely at peace with each other even eating from the same plate.
Agreed, later on there would be "IN-BREEDING" and if so, is it harmful for the progeny? I have read that most breeders do breed the best of their kittens back to either the dam or sire for preserving the 'Breed Profile" as required in "Cat Shows". Require advice on the same.
