They may do it more than other animals, but do they enjoy it more? Well, for a start, the male cat's penis is only about 3/4 of an inch long. Furthermore, penetration only lasts for a couple of seconds. (Cats definitely get the short end of the "stick" here since dogs may stay connected as long as 15 minutes.)
But for cats, there is no foreplay before, no afterplay, no cuddling, no cigarette before, no cocktails afterwards. It's just a slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am affair and when it's over, the male doesn't even hang around long enough to get her phone number for a second date.
Still, the female cat obviously likes it. REALLY likes it. Although she may start slower, she's usually the one with the most sexual stamina. After she has copulated with the male cat a few times, if her totally exhausted mate wants to stop, tough. She may push him to do another round or even six.
Some females will wait until the male is ready to start again, while others don't pussyfoot around. If her man isn't interested in another roll in the hay, the lady may just go and find someone else to service her. (Sometimes, while two male cats are fighting over one female, she goes off with someone else.)
Indeed, she may mate up to 15 times in a session, with a half a dozen different males during one cycle, and sex can go on for hours or even days.
