Coming up to the 99th hour! Still all the positive signs – flopping, snuggling, seeking each other out to snuggle, sharing hay and veggies, sharing litter boxes, sharing water bowl, grooming each other occasionally. It’s just this damn mounting that I can’t get a handle on. I feel like I can’t leave them unsupervised just in case Peanut tries to mount her face and we’re not here to stop him :-/ Is this something that is likely to subside? I don’t know whether they are still needing to establish hierarchy but Buttercup hasn’t humped at all and she puts her head down when Peanut tries humping her, possibly in a submissive manner so is that her accepting that he is top bun? If so, why does Peanut still hump? Is it because she doesn’t sit still and allow it? They both ask for grooming but it’s probably Peanut that obliges moreso than Buttercup.

I’m confused!
