I have a 1 1/2 year old tabby. He is my first cat and spoiled rotten. In the last month he has started a "humping" action at my arm or leg. He is fixed..is this strange?

Hmm...

I've heard that when dogs do this its because they believe they are the dominant one in your relationship. To break them of the habit, you're supposed to have a staring contest with them. First one to break eye-contact loses. When my fiance moved in with me, Sabby started marking all of his (my fiance's) stuff. So I told Justin to have a staring contest with Sabby. It seemed to work. If you try it, let me know how it goes.

I heard that sometimes its a symptom of being neutered too late (same with attempting to spray when they can't). I think it's common though. My friends 14 year old Lab (female) will try to hump you in you happen to be mistakenly in that position.
