Odd cat behavior...?

So, I have two cats. Both male and both fixed. One is named Penguin, who is about three and a half years old. The other is named Ringo, who is a little over a year old.

Recently Penguin has gotten into the habit of... well, humping Ringo. Ringo will be sitting somewhere and Penguin mounts him, grabs a hold of him with his front paws, and proceeds to kick his hind legs in a thrusting motion, not letting Ringo go.

During this "play" Ringo usually looks completely horrified.

I had figured it was some sort of strange playing that Penguin was doing. Like, trying to beat up Ringo or move him out of the way.

Until last night. I found Penguin on top of Ringo, not just kicking him like before. This time, he was flat-out humping Ringo, moving his crotchal region back and forth.
He was holding Ringo down by biting the back of his neck (a common thing cats do when they're mating) and pumping him from behind. To top things off, it looked as though he was actually getting off from doing that.

I yelled at him to get him to stop, but he just looked at me and thrusted slower.


So, what gives? Is this normal for male cats to do to one another? I figure it has something to do with dominance, but it's just God damn creepy and really looks sexual.

Also, it's something new. He's only been doing it for the past month or so.

I'll try and get some pictures next time I catch them in action to show exactly what I mean. But it looks a hell of a lot like when cats in the wild mate.

I'm no cat expert but in dogs humping is used to "dominate" a more submissive dog. My older dog used to hump my younger dog (I would say "NO!" and stop him when he humped) until the point where my younger dog (a Bernese Mountain dog) was bigger than the "humper" (labrador) and just charged and tackled him good

The humping stopped after that.

Hi Who.

It sounds like your one cat is showing his dominance over the other one. Maybe something happened that you didn't see, or you've been giving more attention to one cat over the other, without even realizing it.

You might try a spray bottle with cold water and see if that helps to stop the humping. If not, eventually the other cat will turn around and beat the living shit out of him or he'll turn gay and they'll both enjoy it. Either way, I wouldn't worry too much about it unless one cat is injuring the other.

When I saw the title "Odd cat behavior...?" with the ellipsis trailing off ominously into a question mark, I really should have guessed this thread would somehow involve pictures of a cat orgy. But you know what? I honestly didn't see it coming. I should have, but I didn't.

If you go the water route I wouldn't dump it on both of them. I'd spray Penguin with a solid stream but I think Ringo's been through enough.

We've got a "Gay Pets" week on one of the main radio stations in the UK at the moment, where people are ringing in with all their crazy stories about their gay pets going at it. Your cats sound very similar to a lot of the stuff I heard today. Think yourself luck you don't have lesbian terrapins, like one poor girl

We had a male dog that would try to hump our cat (female) and also our other male dog. He also fathered several puppies in a previous neighborhood we lived in. He would fuck anything that moved!
