Do You Know The Answer?

I was just wondering if anyone knew the answer to a question I have... my cat Mr Jingles is just over two years of age, and was neutered at six months. Is it possible that he would still hump my arm, or am I just imagining it?! I have been noticing the last few weeks that he has been humping my arm. Now I'm not sure if I'm just over reacting... I could be. Jingles was massaging my arm with his paws and biting me... and then started humping me!!!

Anyone know the answer to this? Is it normal for a neutered cat to start humping?!!!

  1. Yup, it's common. Discourage him gently and he may get over it. Speedy stopped doing it when he was about a year old.

  3. Yep it's perfectly possible, he's getting a little excited and it's all getting a bit confused for him. He might be feeling a little insecure, so let one of your T Shirts get all stinky with your smell and encourage him to sleep on it, maybe put it in his favourite bed? Sometimes giving him a soft toy like a teddy bear will distract him, so he can get all close to that instead.

  4. The other day at the shelter there were two little 4 month old kitties doing this together, even though they had been neutered/spayed weeks ago. They both had big, round saucer eyes because they had no idea what they were doing!
