pounce is on a distinguished road
Question kitty hormones

okay, i don;t know how to say/ask this politely. My cat pounce,male, is fixed. However, he still seems to like to TRY and...hump (sorry) certain things, like blankets, stuffed animals. I have tried to break him of this, but it's not working. Any advice?

Hello and welcome!

My neutered male cat does something similar. He kneads my stomach. He kneads and kneads and purrs and purrs and then gets...erm...excited. When I realize he's gotten to that point I push him off me.

it's not that unusual behavior in neutered male cats, I've discovered over the years in pet forums. I don't think it is sexual in nature, really, it's just something they do.

There really isn't any thing harmful in it, when you see him doing it, distract him with a fun Game of some sort.

By the way, the kneading behavior is something almost all cats do. It means they feel happy and content and secure.

Some boy cats just take it a little bit further for some reason.

Aww...the sweet thing! I cried through the whole vid. Which is why I don't watch your videos usually , I just can't cope with the heartache I feel over every single animal.

When will he be neutered? He looks full grown. What's his story? (if it's not too awful, if it is I don't want to know any details, so please warn in advance if you share them)

Will you tell potential adopters about his sucking habit? That could be a "deal breaker" as some people would be bothered by it. I mean, people should be told, because you don't want him being returned, or dumped, because of it.

He's adopted. He gets neutered before he's released to the adopters so no worries there. I don't know his story, he was just another stray...
