Neutered Cat Trying to Mate with the New Kitten?

We have a 3 year old neutered male Siamese cat. We recently adopted a 3 month old female orange tabby. Well the problem is that the older cat keeps forcing himself on the kitten and trying to have his way with her. They would be playing and chasing each other and everything would be fine and then out of no where he would just forcefully try to mate with her. No matter how much we punish him, he always ends up trying to do it again.


What causes this behavior and how can we stop it? Also does this hurt the kitten? She is just a baby :(

The mating behavior is ingrained. Many neutered dogs also "hump." He isn't seriously trying to mate.
She is too little for this type of "play," though. You can try a spray of water if your cat dislikes it.

Some online searching informs me that this is a simulated mating, but otherwise just like a real one. It is pretty brutal and can be a very hard habit to break. You might consider returning the female, since she is still so young, and getting a male kitten.


I know you're very attached to her but this might be more than she can handle. Like you say, she is just a baby.
