Nuetered male mounting female

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I have a male cat that is just around 1 1/2 years old, he was nuetered at about 3 months old, My baby girl Zazzy 8 mos old was spayed when she was about the same age, now Miniman has all of the sudden started grabbing her neck and mounting her like when they mate, and just like stays there like he doesn't know why he did it Is it normal that he would do that even being neutered ?

I don't know but I would love to have your cat pretend to 'mate' my female. She's in heat and driving me NUTS!

Yep, totally normal. Our neutered male does this all the time. He even used to mount his neutered half-brother!

Poor thing... He's trying so hard, and yet the other cat just sits there, and there's nothing he can do... You can just tell how frustrated he is, on more levels than one!

Not at all unusual, but this can be expected to end as time passes. It sometimes takes quite a while for those male hormones to wither away after neutering. Our male, Samwise, came to us with a bad bite on his neck inflicted by a recently-neutered brother who was not gay but instead rather badly confused.

Can also be a power/alpha cat thing

Ooooooh. Maybe thats whats going on when Meeka gets on top of Hope and bites her scruff just like a male would. I wasn't to sure what was going on other than it pisses Hope off quite a bit. That would make sense that its asserting dominance.

Yup, exactly. Bengals do this quite often..females and males. We had an alpha female (retired now), that would do this to male and female alike. It was her way of showing them who's in charge. She would re-inforce her status whenever she felt it was needed.

I must say my neutered male never did that, and I am glad. One less thing to have to explain to the little kids. ....However, speaking of confused, my female dog who is neutered mounts our other younger female dog, who is bigger than her. Talk about gender confusion!

My (neutered male) cats do this to each other all the time; it's a dominance thing, and it's pretty clear which one is dominant! Spike will occasionally try to "hump" my leg, though--the way a dog would!--which is just about the strangest thing in the world ... (For a cat that, to the best of my knowledge, has never even seen a dog, Spike has a lot of traditional dog-like traits. He's amusing, to say the least!)

LOL I was just looking for some kind of post about this. My middle cat (male) is mounting my kitten (male) and they are both neutered. I guess we're not the only ones . . . although my fiance is now totally freaked out

Our neutered male orange-striped cat (Misto) had a habit of mounting our spayed female Galofie:



However, she seems to have cured him of that habit....

Earlier I mentioned that our neutered Turkish Van male, Samwise, came to us at the beach with a bad bite on his neck, as the result of a little foreplay by his confused neutered brother. I had intended to affix a photo of him at that time, but forgot.

Since Sam continually scratched the scratch, preventing it from healing, the vet had us put a sock on his neck after applying some medication. The sock, of course, had the toe cut off, else his entire head would have been encased.

Anyway, here is a photo of a very sad Samwise-in-a-Sock.

Happiest of holidays to all you good cat-people,

Ha... we are always saying how gay(excuse the word choice if it offends) Buttons is because he will settle down and neatly cross his front paws while look at what you're doing.

Prego does this to Polly on occassion too. Like you,I just figured it was a dominance thing. Sometimes he'll meow at her.

I wanted to bump this. My neutered Merlin has also been humping his neutered brother, Milo. Milo seems to enjoy it.. he purrs and smiles the entire time. Sheesh. Is there anything we can do to stop this? It makes a good conversation piece, to say the least. Everything I've read says to leave them be, but is it ok to let this continue?

My neutered five year old male rides every cat in sight.
