After seeing Hestia and Zeus grooming each other tonight - just wondering, do cats who are not sibling's still groom each other?

Regarding grooming -
I have 9 cats who share the same "house space" --
Victoria and Lightnin are sisters
Dagger and Emma are brother and sister
ALL of the other cats in my household are TOTALLY un-related
Most are not even within the same BREED (other than my Bengals, obviously)
ALL of my cats groom one another. It's just according to who is "nearby" or who is "in the mood to groom someone"
The older cats OFTEN groom the younger ones, FIRST, and then the younger ones groom the older one in response. 8)
OR If one cat is sick, it is not unusual to see MORE than one of the others grooming or "snuggling" the one who is ill.

Slash and Milo are not related and they groom each other daily. I love watching them do it, it's really sweet. :D

Emma would try to kill either of them if they tried to groom her though.
