    They are all around 2 years old now and all 5 of them are spayed.

    Do you know just which cat(s) are doing it? Can you tell if anybody is drinking more water than before?
    I have just always heard that any behavior change in a cat should be treated with a trip to the vet. Cats are so darn good at hiding illnesses that the change may be all you get until an illness has progressed too far.
    It is probably nothing but play, but it never hurts to check it out.
    My motto is; better safe than sorry.

    Thing is, I rarely see when they do it. It's like they make sure I'm not watching when they do it. I've caught 2 different cats doing it though.

    How long has it been since a regular vet visit; vaccinations, etc? If they are due then it would be time anyway.
    Do talk to your vet, next time you're there anyway, his/her opinion on vaccinating every year. I've been seeing research on how pets are vaccinated way more often than needed. Cats getting the sarcomas (I think), some kind of tumors on the injection sites.

    I currently don't have a vet because I just moved out of state. It's on my list of things to do. They all saw a vet and got their basic shots a little over a year ago. It's hard to find a decent vet. I find that most try to push blood work, xrays, etc for just yearly visits. It's ridiculous.

    I still recommend finding rescues and shelters and asking who they use (vet) or who they recommend. That is the best way I have ever found to find a good vet, one that cares and is not in it for the $$.

    Good idea, never thought of that. Thanks for the advice!
