Why Neutered Cats Still Hump
Dogs sometimes hump their humans. I mean, they hump everybody’s legs, they hump furniture, and that’s something almost all dogs do. Yes, dogs. So, what do I do when my cat starts humping everything like a dog does?
Answer: I take a video.
My beautiful cat has already been neutered, but he still has a stuffed toy that he humps. He sometimes gets bored with the stuffed toy and goes for my leg. He gets so frustrated (I can just imagine!) when I shoo him away gently, so I distract him with his favorite stuffed toy. Today, however, he was looking at me with such intense eyes that would have creeped me out if I wasn’t laughing so hard. I then took a video of it:
Experts say neutered cats still hump to show superiority. Others say it’s an instinctive behavior, kind of like kids exploring their gender-related personas. I also read about a few experts claiming that cats sometimes develop this behavior when there is a new person in the household or you’ve been really busy lately, as a way to get your attention.
Perhaps I’ll never figure out why my cat keeps humping my leg. But this funny video, I hope, will endear our pets to us all the more. They give us love (and sometimes even more), so we should celebrate every funny moment we have with them. Here’s to funny animal videos, and may our cats and dogs live forever in our hearts!
