Honestly, I was wondering the same thing. I've found evidence of Felix's boy time on the fleece under his igloo since the day I brought him home, and up until a few weeks ago he had never done it in front of me. Once I got past the point of being EXTREMELY grossed out, I started wondering if that meant he was just feeling more comfortable around me.

Some males are just... not shy/discreet about it. Archimedes has done it whenever and wherever he happens to feel like doing it, from the start.

Not all boys do it, and some are just very discreet and leave little or no evidence. Generally it starts around sexual maturity, which for boys is as early as 7-8 weeks old. It can also start later, of course. For Archimedes it was around 9ish weeks. Sometimes it seems to be a sort of puberty phase and stops happening later on, and some will do it all their lives.

Loki's around 7 weeks now, so we'll see. But I hope he will be a little more discreet then

Bos "enjoys himself" while simultaneously having his dinner when he first wakes up. Such a boy.

I think it mostly means he's comfortable with you. Maybe just give him some time in his snuggle bag or blanket.

Sometimes Diggy pokes around down there in front of me haha but I don't think he actually does it then. I always find evidence in his house though..
