fixed cat seems suddenly horny

post #1 of 16

Alright, I havent' written in forever, but this will give everyone a laugh or two. It's funny but a tad confusing.
My 3 yr old domestic shorthair "PUmpkin" is nuetered. But over the past 3 weeks, he's been using lap time (which isn't often usually) as a way to get sexually aroused. Remember now folks, he's fixed. I adopted him last summer and he was already fixed, likely by his first owner.
He'll get on my lap, start purring and kneading, but its really intense. His back feet move a little too while this is happening. Not like when he just sits in my lap and kneads a little and then settles down for a few minutes before leaving. This intense "kneading" goes on for 3 to 5 mins. then he'll jump off and begin cleaning himself. Thats when I see this small pink member sticking out.
WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON??? And why did it just start?

I don't know but mine seems to be exhibiting that behavior as well and he is also fixed.

My cat, Tailer (also fixed), does this, too. We have a blanket on the back of the couch he likes to put his hind legs on, the he puts is front paws on my ribs, and starts kneading (and, um, other stuff). My vet says it's a sign of affection.

This is funny stuff. Well I've had fixed dogs who still hump objects. I guess fixed cats still have their urges. I wonder if it's a spring thing. this just started.

every single night before I went to bed my cat would start doing that. I have this giant teddy bear I use as a kind of pillow because its very comfy and he would always be taking the arm or nose and humping at it. HE WOULD NEVER DO THIS until I went to bed which was very annoying, but after I pushed him off a couple of times he just stopped doing it. Now though... my girl kittenhas started doing something similar, but without the humping.. she'll knead the bear and rub her face on it (OK I know what you are thinking right now but the bear has been washed like a gajillion times ) but she never humps it. I think its just teh fabric or whatever because the bear is very soft and nice :P

I really don't believe there is anything sexual in this at all, he is simply cleaning himself.

Now in humans, it might be a little different: To the best of my memory, and as I recall, after my wife had me "fixed" there was perhaps an upsurge in certain activities.

It's simply a sign of affection. There could be any number of reasons it just started within the last few weeks, or it may be nothing at all.

Cats are very scent driven, so this could have been brought on by a change in fabric softener, hair spray, deoderant, soap, etc. It could also be a "spring thing", with the new smells from budding trees and plants.

I guess we should be thankful our kitties love us, even if it is a bit embarrassing.

Well Piccolo was fixed before he could mature but he humps my females and does the whole thing of stalking them , biting the neck and humping. A bit funny when Trish my female starts playing male and does it to the female cats.

SO i have one male fixed tryn to mate with female's and on female trying to be a male and mate with the female's.

From our den bay window, which is about 15 feet above the back yard, Betty and I watched a feral tom stalking his resigned female partner.

We have a number of fuzzy stuffed cats with electronic voice boxes that react to squeezing, and our cats like them and will tussle with them, and the toys are therefore, cat scented.

One of them, "Alleycat" gives out a few plaintive meows and then goes into a paroxysm of ferocious screaming and yowling after having his paw squeezed.

I cranked open one of the side glasses of the bay window and lowered "Alleycat" on a string after "starting" him, and the feral tom went ballistic.

He came tearing across the yard, leaped at the yowling toy, and had I not jerked it back he would have hung his claws in it.

I quickly brought the toy back in and cranked the window shut, for the LAST thing I wanted in the den was an angry romantic feral tom.

Our cat Ebony used to love our daughter's white teddy bear. When he pressed on it's chest it would play Christmas songs. My husband said he liked it because it sang to him while he made love to it.

Often in the middle of the night we could hear this teddy bear "singing" and figured Ebony was having trouble sleeping!

Just to clarify, dogs "hump" objects, people or other animals for dominance and to reinforce their place in the hierarchy of the pack.
Its not a sexual activity.

As for the cat, it sounds as if she is simply showing affection by kneading..There are many different things that stimulate arousal and its not necessarily sexual towards you! For instance, in a human mother, the same motion that stimulates breast milk to "let down" is the same physiological reaction when sexually aroused..Its just a bodily function and it has its purpose.

My parents neutered cat does the same thing - with cushions, quilts, soft blankets... He often meows a bit while he does it.

I dont know exactly why they do it but I wouldnt be too worried - it seems pretty common and harmless.

If you dont want him doing this on you, dont tell him off I'd just gently pick him up off your lap and place him on the sofa beside you, or on the floor.

Lovey, how wise and astute of you to recognize actions for what they are and not as we often perceive them in ourselves.

You are a very perceptive lady ! !

Yes, Ebony had quite the affection for the singing bear!

Well, from reading all these posts, I now realize this is fairly normal for male cats, and from what you're telling me even some females. I thought so, but it always helps to get a few opinions. Its funny stuff about your female cat. I've heard some folks say their dogs and cats seem same sex oriented. Are you cool with having a "gay" cat?
