View Full Version : Desexed Cat on heat??
Umm. How do i put this nicely. Well my male cat (3) keeps climbing on top of my female kttena dn seems to be "humping" her.....thing is he was desexed over 2 years ago. Im getting the kitten desexed in 8 weeks. But i dont know what is going on with my boy. Could he not have been desexed properly?? :confused:
My old cat used to do this too. I guess you can take away the baby making tools, but not the male mind :laughing: He used to go out and fight LOTS too. Obviously desexing doesn't always fix that.
Im just worried about him hurting her...he is a really big cat (swear he is a runt lepard :D ). And she is only about 5 months old. He stays on top of her for ages and she cries until i rescue her :(
It could be a dominance thing too. Maybe just squirt some water at him everytime he does it and hope he learns not to?
hmmm ok. So do u think there is a chance maybe that the vet stuffed up the procedure? I know he had a retracted testical (was up in his leg join!!), but the vet supposedly surgically removed it....now i am worried
:) I know how you feel, after years of frustration with my retired breeding cats...the thing with desexing cats is that you can take away the physical equipment to perform the task, but not the hormones that drive the urges!
Males are very dominant and now that we are coming into spring, he's feeling whats left of his 'oats' - you'll probably find that your little kitten is giving off the signals that she's preparing to come into heat.
There's not a lot you can do, you can try squirting water when you catch him (but be careful that he doesn't get jealous and really begin to turn on the kitten). They will work themselves out with time - but it will become easier on him once she's desexed!
ok. what age can she be done at the earliest?
It really depends on the vet. Some vets will desex at 12 weeks - but IMO that's waaay to early!
Most vets I've spoken to over the years recommend around 5 or 6 months (because that's generally the time they first come into heat).
My advice would be to talk to the vet where you're planning on taking her - see what they say.
If its an issue most vets will desex at 5 months, in regards to desexing it does take the hormone away, as testosterone is produced in the testicles, it is probalby a dominance thing, same as sterilised dogs humping your leg etc. Good luck i hope you find a solution but I dont think sterilising her is going to help
