Strange behaviour

ever since my female cat has been spayed ( Today ) her brother boof has been sniffing her behind then jumping on her back biting her neck, she came home in a rentable cat cage, could this be making this behaviour from boof a lil wierd, and the spayed cat is going crazy tonight really active, is that normal.

Re: Strange behaviour

Is Boof neutered?
Place female cat who has been spayed in a small room (bathroom, guest bedroom) with sleeping area, food, water, litterbox and close the door.

Re: Strange behaviour

Meeka has been a little more crazy since being de-sexed. I don't think it has anything to do with the surgery though..

I actually like it, she's prettty entertaining and she's playing with Samson heaps more now too

Re: Strange behaviour

i just noticed both cats are biting her on the back of the neck, is that playful or fighting?

Re: Strange behaviour

Biting on the back of the neck can be:
Expressing breeding behavior...
Expressing dominance behavior...
Expressing aggressive behavior...

You'll need to figure out which of these three the two male cats are doing. If she was recently spayed, she could still smell "in season" and this will cause the males to try to mount/breed her. I'm not so sure about dominance behavior, because that is something I associate more with dogs, than with cats. Aggressive, if they are growling, spitting, snarling and clawing at each other...that is *not* play.

Re: Strange behaviour

Then I suspect the mother is still teaching her daughter "manners" and the male cat has "love" on his mind. He needs to be neutered. Repeated biting at the back of the neck can cause damage and scar tissue.

Re: Strange behaviour

I just read on wikipedia that biting the neck is what is done before mating... maybe they are trying to mate with her and her being spayed has triggered some kind of scent or something.
