This is a bit embarassing. I have only found one other person whos cat does this and no one seems to know the reason.
The thing is, my cat humps my leg nearly every night! sometimes as many as 3 times. sometimes not for 2 or 3 days.
I got him as a stray 2 1/2 years ago. He was neutered already and my vet thinks he is about 4 - 5 years old now.
He will wait for me while Im getting ready for bed then when I get in hes up on the bed purring like mad. then he gets hold of a mouthful of duvet and humps my leg! When hes done, he licks his bits and either goes to sleep or goes out.
I have also been woken at silly o`clock when hes been getting fruity with my shoulder and hes smacking me round the face with his tail!
Sometimes he will do it with the duvet during the day.
I heard that dogs hump their owners legs to assert their dominance. could this be what Kitty is doing?
Does anyone elses cat do this?
I asked the vet and she said it was just habit.
maybe he has unresolved issues about being neutered?!
Would love to hear your thoughts!
