    I've managed to own Dante for a year and a half now and never got flashed by him.... Until this morning. Omg was that a shock! Lol!

    After peeing he stood on his tippy toes and started moving his head in and out very quickly. I thought he might be straining really hard to poo or something and picked him up gently to check.... now i know......

    Unless our neighbors suddenly have a female tort, I have no idea what got him all hot and bothered!

    too funny, we've all been there before. If he is anything like my young male, you will find him doing this more often. Last week, mine did it each morning for 3 mornings in a row when I went to feed him!! My wife was shocked when she saw him do it on the patio one morning. :D

    Yes, they find themselves and then become very proud. My leopard was very proud for a month or a little more.:)
