Humpy Dumpy

Can anyone advise.
My two year old male cat was neutered about three months so but still humps like mad.
He particularly enjoys humping my faux fur blanket! There has been no reduction and its getting a bit ridiculous. He has also taken to humping DH's feet during the night.
Any thoughts?

he might have had a bit of his testicles left behind when they neutered him so he will still be producing testosterone, have seen this happen a few times with cats at the rescue i work at, the only solution for this is sorry vets and a hormone test to confirm it

Ok... Thanks for taking the time to reply. Will take him back.

I was about to say the same as Issey. It can also happen with female cats if a bit of the ovary is left behind, they then still come into season and will be pursued by toms, and a second op is the only answer in this case.

Bloody great Sad
Those vets have made a fortune out of me. Oh well. I really can't cope with the indefinite humping. He is worse than a dog.
Thanks for the feedback

If that does turn out to be the reason you should ask them to do it for free
