- n. An animal that is groomed by another (the groomer).
Surprisingly, both the groomer and the groomee spent less time preening themselves post-allogrooming - though unsurprisingly, the stress relief effect was greater for the birds that had received the "massage" instead of giving it.
The groomee would put up with it for a little while, but she could only take so much — and then she’d whack the other kitteh with her paw, go hide under the chair where he couldn’t get at her, and take swipes at him from underneath when he tried to follow her!
