Sassy cats – Gus’ booty call

Will you be my booty call?

Every family has their dirty secret and we have ours.

Gus was adopted at three. He had been at the rescue since he was eight weeks old. I assume he was neutered around three months which is typical but I’m not sure.

He is my second boy cat. Jake was a very manly cat but not much of a ladies’ man. When we adopted Mollie, she went into heat almost immediately and tried to work her charms with Jake. It didn’t work. He did not like her caterwauling and the presentation of her rump in his face. We didn’t either and she was spayed in a week. Other than being friendly, Jake showed no interest in Mollie. No canoodling or face licking. Nada.

Gus was here for about a year when he “had needs.” He tried to hop on top of Sasha,  his best cat buddy, but she wasn’t having any of it. She womped him good. I believe her words were, “What? No dinner or drinks? Just a booty call? No way!” That was the end of that, but he still had needs.

The canoolding goes on.

His second favorite female is me. He isn’t attracted to the grays in that way. They are friends and play together but there was no attraction. However, my leg is another story. Luscious and smooth and almost always covered with a fleecy throw, he swooned over it. (Mostly he swooned over the fleecy throw!)

When I watch TV, I have the recliner out so my legs are level. That is just perfect for a nice hump. At first, I was astounded and explained to him that this was nonconsensual. He didn’t understand the concept. Then it was easier to let him have his fun. It never lasts long, and nothing gets wet. He tried it at 3 a.m. in bed once. That didn’t go well, and he was trounced off the bed.

He doesn’t do it often but occasionally we have a moment together. I am Gus’ booty call.

  1. Kate, soooooooo funny! I would take his..er… enthusiasm for your leg covered by a fleecy throw over litter box issues any old day. Like you said, he has “needs” and better that then frustrated and doing some other kind of destructive behavior. Thank you for this fun (and interesting) post today and the comments were pretty laugh worthy, too!

  2. That is too funny. I have had many more females than males, but none have done that. Brody has a harem of ladies that like to be near him for sleeping, but that is it. Thanks for the chuckle. 🙂

    • He is a lovey guy. If I sit down he comes to sit on my lap. Perhaps after the shelter he’s basking in the attention. He was a favorite at the rescue (or so they tell me). They said friendly but didn’t like to be held and wasn’t a lap cat. Well, they were wrong.

    • I had a friend whose dog had a pillow on the floor in their bedroom for these sorts of things. She was showing me her house and the dog came along. Then he had a hump and we went on our way! So funny!

  3. Teddy has never expressed a desire to have “that kind” of relationship with me or any of my body parts but he DOES have a huge fascination for my hair (what little there is of it). I suppose in the scheme of things I shouldn’t complain!

    Hugs, Pam

    • Jake wasn’t like this either so it’s new to me. Jake was very affection and I often woke up to a black fuzzy cat sleeping next to me on my pillow (which Gus does not do). Just like people, cats are all different.

  4. But he was neutered? I mean, your vet would have noticed. I’ve never had a cat do that after being fixed. All the boy kitties were fixed at 6 months. Charlie the first was a bit older than that because we were waiting for his twin brother from a different mother to catch up in age. A little neighborhood hussy came around before they got fixed and Charlie was interested in going outside. He kept looking at me with an expression that said, I want to go outside, I don’t know why, I just want to go. I’ve only had one girl cat go through heat and neither one of us wanted to experience that again.

    • Yes he is neutered. I’ve never heard of this with a cat. Dogs yes, cats no. It’s not frequent. Maybe twice a month. As for heat, OMG! Mollie was about 6 pounds when she joined us. She had just had a litter that was grown enough and adopted so she went into heat almost immediately. I didn’t know 6 pounds can caterwaul so loudly. We couldn’t get her to stop either. I made an appointment immediately. We had hoped to let her settle in about a month before spaying but that did not happen. She came to us with a respiratory infection so she went through a lot in her first month.
