Neutered Male Cats Mounting Younger Neutered Male Cat?

I have 4 male cats, all neutered. 3 of them are about 9 years old and the other is about 5 years old. All of a sudden the older cats keep trying to mount the younger, more passive cat. They've never behaved like this before. Why would they all of a sudden start doing this now? Poor little Rusty is having a rough time dealing with this. They've always been very loving and gentle with him.

It could be that they are trying to show dominance. They could also be trying to relieve stress. I would speak to the vet about this.

You are likely to need your Vet for this issue. It may be a hormonal issue or a dominance issue or both. Look for any changes in your home that may be causing these males to become more aggressive. Do you have neighborhood cats that visit and can be challenging your older male cats?

This is a very common problem and can make male cats more aggressive. You may need to block their view or discourage visiting cats. I set out a game camera one night and was amazed at how many critters visited my front porch. My cat of course saw them all.
