    Ok, I'll cut right to the chase. In the last couple of months, Blue (who just turned 6) has started "pleasuring himself"......a lot!!!! He never did this before, but now he will find a nice blanket and have his way with it up to five or six times over the course of an evening. He's fixed, so I was kind off taken off guard the first time I caught my little boy in the act :Dizzy::Wink::Surprise: Is this normal "teenage" behavior? Any thoughts???

    my first Sphynx did this and I never knew why. He was also fixed but he would do it many times a day too. I dont have advice as to why just know he isnt the only one!!!

    Ha! Butterball doesn't pleasure himself but if he did, I would film it. That would make a great video. I might actually get a piece of that proverbial Google/Youtube pie with a video like that.

    Pleasuring himself or (mounting) is normal for intact male cats. Even after neuter surgery, hormones take time to leave the body and mounting, gripping a female by the neck with teeth, and "humping" can continue for a few weeks.

    Neutered cats sometimes continue this behavior. They may target other cats, it doesn't seem to matter if the other cat is neutered or spayed, and sometimes cats simply become “special buddies†with a certain pillow or stuffed animal. Although the hormones are gone, the cats continue to "hump" and that's well within the range of normal male cat behavior.

    :BigSmile: "special buddies"


    kiennasmom- You said Blue just turned 6 and now he has started humping. How long ago was he neutered? Perhaps he has been hiding his 'special buddy' all this time and once you caught him he decided to be more open about it.

    Just be thankful that he is having his way with a blanket and not you! We had a problem with Leo where he would try to hump me:Woo: :Badly: he would snuggle up grab on to my shirt and try to do his deed. Before I notice what the heck he was doing I ended up with a not so pleasant wetness all over me:Badly: now if he gets to friendly we tell him no no.
    I do find that he likes fleece blankets and things rather then cotton, so now that my winter jammies are away I seem to be safe.
    I would just tell Blue no and distract him when he starts this, if he keeps it up he could start spraying and let me tell you that will make you crazy:Hysterical:

    He was fixed over 4 yrs ago. My dumb question is can he still spray even though he's altered? I definitely don't want that!

    His "special buddies" are microfleece & micromink blankets. I hate to take them away since 1)we have many throughout the house & 2)they're also Bayleigh's favorites. She's just platonic friends with them, though :Dizzy:

    Maybe I'll start distracting him instead?

    Yes, he can still spray if he was neutered (and spayed females can too).

    Maybe Blue is having a little mid-life crisis and needs to sow his wild oats. Then again who can resist those microfleece and micromilk blankets? They are just so soft!

    Kramer does is but only to one specific blanket... that poor newman is usually under when he does it:Dizzy:.... if we take that blanket away & use a different one it doesn't happen anymore.
    It is completely normal.

    I've never had a nuetered male kitty do this. lol Sounds like its halarious to see but man, I'd hate for my kitty to bust out in the middle of the floor when I have guest over and start that up. That would take the conversation to someplace totally different! lol

    Oh man, that would be the funniest thing ever!! My buddy has a chihuahua and he was watching his girlfriends husky. Well the chihuahua thought he'd have a go on the husky in the middle of 7 or 8 people. We laughed for hours!

    I'm sitting here looking at Ball and he's hunched over licking his belly and paws. The thought occurred to me, how the heck would he have a go on himself anyway? Do they lick themselves or use their little hands in some way?

    Gee ElGatoLoco. :Pudently:
    I think it's more like Blue is doing the "humpty dance" with a microfleece blanket.

    Marmalade, my old orange tabby does it, he is neutered, he does it to me or hubby!! But he is real big on foreplay first, so you know it's coming....first he sits next to you and starts kneading softly on your arm or chest while staring at you, he starts kneading harder and harder until it actually hurts! all the while he stares directly in your eyes, not lovingly, but more..yeah baby you know you like it!, then he scoots his rump closer to you and if you have let him get this far the real action begins, lol ewwwwwwww. Now that we know his signs we can stop him before it goes to far

    When this first got posted, I was only thinking about my old Sphynx and the blanket. Somehow I failed to remember that my furry cat humps the dog and the dog just sits there humiliated and lets Milton have his way with him! :Surprise::Surprise::Surprise: I will have to video tape it when I have some time! :LOL::LOL::LOL:

    Ha ha ha! This is hilarious! I was wandering about this . . . .it's something I've always considered posting but been to shy to!

    Mo's erm..... prawn???!! Seems to poke out sometimes when he's erm . .. . . . 'washing' himself down there! On quite a regular occassion! Also I caught him just the other day in his bed 'making sweet love' to his leapord print hot water bottle. I have to say, I was a bit surprised by his actions.

    Mo was fixed well over a year ago now. But he still appears to have his 'urges'. . . . Lola better watch out as she is Leopard print! LOL

    OMG you guys, thank you soooo much for bringing some humor to the situation!! Sam, I thought about posting for weeks about this but didn't know how to word it.

    I don't think I'd record the whole thing since it usually takes over 15 minutes if you include the "foreplay" (FYI PERFECT description Gadzukz!!). I don't have a camcorder, just my phone. I will try to catch him tonight.....shouldn't be that difficult!!:Wink:

    Hahahahahahahaaha, oh my gosh! That is the funniest thing! :LOL::Laugh::LOL:

    I've never witnessed a cat humping anything, only my female dog. When you're laying on the bed under the covers, she'll run up to you and start licking the covers as if to "butter you up." Then, she'll dig a bit, and once comfy, hump away until she can move no more. Thankfully, we got her fixed last month, and she hasn't done it since! Silly aimals.
