I am the youngest of my family. I was adopted by my Mum and Dad who I love very much (even though I bite them). I like to do nothing and everything (all at once). I have Cat-itude and I wanted this blog to tell you all what I think about everything. So listen up.

an embarrassing problem

Hi - Molly here hijacking Oscar's blog.

We have a little bit of an embarrassing problem at the moment. It's Oscar - Since Mum got pregnant with the baby bean he has been ummmm "humping" Mum and Dad. They thought it was some reaction to Mum's pregnancy hormones but the baby bean is 6 months old now and it is still happening.

Every night Mum is woken up by Oscar being on top of the doona humping her leg. She goes to push him off and he growls at her. He bites the doona and it is quite an effort to get him off. Even then, most of the time he comes straight back to try again. Mum is really sick of it. He does it to Dad too but mostly to Mum.

Oscar has been desexed since he was a kitten - he is 3 now. Do you think it might be a hormonal imbalance? He doesn't do it to me but then I never let him get close enough to try.

It appears to be getting worse. I think he might have to go to the V-E-T.

Has anyone ever heard of a kitty with a humping problem?

yes, actually Skeezix is going through the same thing right now - since his brother Mao disappeared for a few days he has been having the same problem. It could be stress. taking him to the v-e-t would probably be the best thing to see what's going on with him.

I'd have the vet check him out to see what is going on. It could be the reaction to stress (ala Skeezix) but it's hard to know.

Oh no ... that doesn't sound good for your Mom at all (or Oscar). Hopefully it's just a stress thing and he will settle down. This is a new one for me, but I hope you get a good answer from the vet.
