  • Well, I have 7 cats, all fixed, 4 of them male, and none of them display that kind of behavior.... However, as with dogs, when it comes to the point of them starting to hump things, a lot of them WILL continue to do do so after getting fixed. Which is why the recommendation is to get your pets fixed as early as possible. Once they start doing things like spraying, or humping, it can be hard to break them of the habit, even after they've been fixed.

    I honestly don't have an answer for you, other than try to have a spray can ready and hit the cat with a spray of water every time he starts doing it. Make sure he doesn't see YOU do it, he needs to associate the bad result (water) with his behavior (humping). Good luck!
