Why does your neutered male cat try to make love to your arms or legs when you are laying down?

Some cats, especially males, sometimes still hump is just due to

his nature. While the cat is completely sterilised, sometimes the

instinct to mate stays with the cat. This happens usually with cats

who have been neutered well after they have reached sexual maturity

at six months.

While this behaviour is possibly unwanted, it is perfectly

natural to the cat and ultimately does not cause any harm. You

could, however, curb the behaviour by distracting him with toys,

treats, etc.
