We've got a cat that's roughly 10 years old now. He was neutered when he was around 1 and while he has had flings with our other male cat, has been pretty low key in terms of sexual exploits...until recently. For a few months he has been doing unspeakable things to any clothing left within his reach. He'll settle for clean clothes, but really loves dirty laundry. We will sometimes catch him in the act because he starts meowing and we'll go to see what's going on and find him dragging our clothes around the house and then doing his deed if left uniterrupted.

To be completely honest, it's creeping us out. Is there an idea what might be causing this and (short of doing a better job of picking up after ourselves, which we're working on) what we might be able to do to mitigate this behavior?

I'm interested in the responses to this. My cat was neutered as early as they do it and he does this too - not as much as your cat, from the sounds of it, but I'm curious why and what to do about it (if anything). My cat's thing is fuzzy fleece blankets. I always have to either hide them or stack non-fleecy blankets on top of them.

My cat looooved fleece blankets too! His behavior started (or maybe just intensified, can't remember) around the time that I had a baby. He mostly did it when we weren't around, and I kept things away from him that I didn't want humped. He got attached to a Garfield stuffed animal so that became his "friend".
We didn't really discourage it? I figured it was just a natural impulse.

Dogs mounting I know about. Cats mounting, different story. But I'm thinking that working to tire him out using interactive toys might help. Teaser wands and the like, giving him a chance to interact with your scent but also giving him physical output? I'd start there.

Chewie likes to hump the recliner arm while he's sitting right next to me. Thankfully he's cut back lately.

The tiel used to be a total nympho. At least twice an hour she would spend 5 minutes squealing and rubbing herself on something. Cockatiel orgasms--who knew?

We had her on Lupron hormone shots for a while and they helped a lot (mostly because her laying eggs was dangerous).

Honestly, I would give them their favorite hump toy, keep all other objects of desire hidden, and let him go to town. It's not hurting him, it's not destructive, so I would try and just ignore it.

We've been working on giving him a lot more attention in the past week, don't know if we're seeing any results yet but we'll keep at it. We do have a 2 year old that is occupying much of our time these days so it could be a matter our cat feeling he's not getting enough attention these days. We'll see!

Are you slut-shaming your cat?
