for the love of cats
Milo was neutered back in September 2011. He will be 9 months old January 30th. He is however I think trying to (and excuse me for saying it this way), hump either my leg or arm.
He's not aggressive about it he starts out as play but acts a little odd with little nibble bites and grabbing on. I always put a stop to it and set him on the floor and say no firmly ... then try to distract him with a toy. I don't ever remember my older cat doing this after being neutered. However, that was over 20 years ago.
Is this normal and will he grow out of it? Any suggestions on what I can do will be greatly appreciated. I have read that cats do this because they want attention. Last night Milo tried again so I laid him down on the bed and started brushing. That seemed to calm him down and put him to sleep for a little while. I'm trying really hard to give him the attention he needs ... just not sure if it's enough.
I am away from home 8-9 hours a day at work and when I am home I'm constantly running around fixing supper, cleaning up the kitchen, etc. I have been trying my best (as I always have) as soon as I get home loving on Milo and petting and playing. When I'm not doing anything else throughout the house Milo and I are playing. Even as early as 2:00 in the morning when I REALLY don't want to be awake! ...
I can really use some advice as to what to do.
