OSTRICH Males are Macho DadsStruthio camelus©thegreenogre
When  the male ostrich fights off competitors to cobble together a harem of  five to six females, he is taking on an enormous responsibility that few  of us would envy. Once done with the amorous preliminaries, the females  get down to business. The male does the dirty work, scraping a pit in  the ground that can be up to two feet wide and ten feet wide. In this  large communal nest, the pregnant females lay their eggs. The hens  incubate the eggs during the day when their drab plumage blends  perfectly with the sand. In the dangerous dark of the night, the  dark-coloured male takes over. Hunched over the nest in the dark, he is  almost impossible to see. Once the eggs hatch, he teaches the chicks to  feed and defends them against predators. A kick from his powerful legs,  tipped with two sharp claws, has been known to kill lions. This guy is a  macho dad all the way.

Why do cats DO that?

Oooh, I know! It’s a vestigial behavior from being a kitten - they do that to kitty mama boobs to help express leche. They do it as adults if they feel comfortable and happy.

^^

Aw … like the kitteh version of thumb-sucking.
