Neutered cat doing things...

*NOTE* If you're not comfortable reading about/discussing sexual behavior in kittehs, please stop reading.

So I have a twelve year-old male cat who was neutered at a very young age, and he's never exhibited any signs of a non-fixed cat, even when he was friends with several female cats at our old house. Suddenly in the last few weeks he started kneading more than usual (just the normal, kitten-type kneading) but he's always done that. And then, one day, it changed to something else. He was, for lack of a better/more sophisticated term, humping my foot. He's been doing this kind of thing more and more and it's kind of freaking me out.

Does anyone else have this problem or have any idea what to do in this situation? I'm a little worried because I've heard that it could be a sign of depression or something, but he seems normal and happy otherwise, he still plays like he's a young kitten, and he still eats, drinks, and goes outside. Any help/advice is appreciated, thanks!

You probably want to get him checked out by a vet. Sudden changes in behavior are usually indicative of some sort of change in the body be it tumors or disease or mental problems. Otherwise it's possible that he's just masturbating. But given that he's 12 and just starting this behavior my bet is that there is something wrong with him.

Oh dear :( I suppose you're was really kind of sudden, and like I said, it's totally out of character. I could understand if he's always done it, but it's just the past few weeks, and at his age it's just kind of unlikely that that would happen without reason. I'll keep an eye on it and if it doesn't stop soon I'll definitely get him to the vet.

EDIT: Just thought I should mention this, though I doubt it's relevant since I've been riding for 1.5 years...but he especially likes my chaps and riding boots and gets kind of excited by the horse smell. But then it would have been a constant thing since I started riding, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. *sigh*
