Tried to search for an answer but didnt see anything. Wonder if my boys are just weird.

So the other day during floor time Odair moved to Porcupine and nudged behind his ear, almost nibbling. They both were squeaking back and forth no problem, nothing bad sounding. He did this a couple times and it looked adorable. Then just today i had both boys out for some lap time (not likely to repeat they got annoyed being stuck so close) and Porcupine did it to Odair this time. Both times the groomer nudged the groomee, rested their head on the other's back for a moment, then "nibbled" behind their ear. My two cats do this as a show of affection so shoul i assume thats also what it means for my piggus? They are 12wk (about) boys, if that makes any diffrence.

I'm not terribly worried since there is no blood or chattering or pained squeals. But curious none the less.
