My neutered cats seem to have coitus.

by Diane

My neutered male cat often mounts my spayed female and thrusts. Are they really having coitus, or is this just a common behavior?


There are a few reasons that this can happen. When a tom is neutered about 90% won't display tom behaviors anymore. However, in about 10% of the cases they continue the behavior although they can't reproduce.

There are the cases of the cryptorchid cats that could come into this: Cryptorchid Cat .

I also saw a great explanation from Dr. Nicholas Dodman that explains the situation pretty well: sexual aggression in neutered cats

I hope this helps. Good luck with resolving the problem.
