My female cat birthed a litter about 4 weeks ago ... this?!? He's taking over the show here... This aint' right.

It is right: from the point of view of his genes, a sister's kittens are the next best thing to ... survive. Completely unreleated kittens would be another matter, but the behavior pattern that favors relatives may not be that restrictive.

Fascinating!
My female cat birthed a litter about 4 weeks ago and to my surprise, my male cat (not the father ... around wondering what the hell happened too! Should I stop this?!? He's taking over the show here... This aint' right.

Don't mess with success. It takes a village. And so on. He's being a very Good Boy.

I got my maine coon when she was 8 weeks old and my male siamese cat was like a father to her. She run up to him and try to nurse off him and he would grab her and then groom and bathe her from head to toe. She would be like a little wet ball. I do have pics of that because it was so cute. He was a very good daddy to her.

Wow - another species?? This is just fascinating!!

Animals baffle me. You think you gottem' all figured out and then they turn around and do something like this! LoL
Why wasn't she spayed, and the father neutered, when you brought them home?

Not another species! They are both domestic cats (felis domestica). Just different breeds...

It does happen inter-species, too, though. Just probably not as often. There's a woman on the binaries.animals group who rehabs baby squirrels. Her cat, Mimi, nursed a little of squirrels. I also used to have a article on my fridge about a chihuahua who nursed a.. a... oh, rats! I've forgotten what kind of animal it was. A kitten? A chipmunk? Not a dog.
