Female in heat acts like rescued kitty is her own. Is this normal behavior? she avoids her neutere

Hi -- Don't know if you can answer this, but here's the situation. We have 3 cats. - 1 neutered Maine Coon, 1 adult female, not spayed, and a 3-4 month old kitten. The kitten was found in the street and brought indoors. At first, the Maine Coon was the only one who accepted her - he just loved her and played with her, while the female hissed at her and avoided her. Then the female went into heat, and began to just love the kitty - licking her, pulling her close as to nurse, protecting her - just acting like she was her own baby! She also completely avoided the Coon (who she continued to have sex with even after he was neutered). This lasted for about 4 days. Then the adult female went back to hissing and avoiding! She went into heat again, and repeated the same behavior - loving the kitty, cleaning her, playing with her - treating her just like her own baby (she had a litter with the Coon last year). Anyway, is this normal? Just wondering
