Tomcat "Howling"

Hi there, Im new to this forum but i really need some advice.

I have a 12 month old tomcat. His name is Zeus. He is the most gorgeous, healthy, loving cat I have ever owned but I have a couple of problems.

1) Once per day he has a mad attack 5 minutes and attcks me really hard. If he cant get my hands then he literally hurls himself through the air upside down even at my legs nad grabs hold. I always get him off and then he is fine for the rest of the day.

2) This is the most annoying. He walks round the flat "howling" like a wild animal even when he has been fed and loved. Then he'll go outside and do the same, always popping in and out to see me but then howling again none the less. What can it be? Do you think that its because I havent had him neutered and he's in mating mode? He's driving me mad!!!

Any help i would greatly appreciate.

regards

Mav

It's definaltey because he's unaltered. If he goes outdoors you should definaltey have him fixed, not only for the health of your own cat (he can contract many diseases through mating, fighting etc.) but for the lives of all the kittens he's out there creating. There's already a GIANT population problem. Please dont contribute to it!

He needs to be neutered.

Male cats become able to reproduce at 10 months of age.

Thanks for the replies. Im going to get him neutered this weekend.

Is that why he makes this howling noise all the time? Is he looking for partners? I would just like to understand.

Cheers

Once he is neutered he will calm down quite a bit, and quiet down as well. Sometimes they still have leftover hormones, so it may take up to a month.
