My male has combined kneading with 'going through the motions'of unneutered behavior. He used to only knead my arm and it was 'cute', and made me feel that he was comfortable in my home. He is a fixed male stray that I took in four years ago so I don't really know his history other than he was already fixed, and is about 8 or 9 years old now. Once he starts kneading my arm now he gets excited. Yes, I'm sure. The kneading is okay but I don't understand the rest of it and want to stop this new behavior. What suggestions do any of you have? Any psycologists out there that can explain this new disturbing behavior? I have a two year old fixed female too. He doesn't seem to bother her one bit other than to groom and snuggle with. They are adorable together.
