Hi, I'm new here, and my 1.5 yo male neutered cat is exhbiting some strange nocturnal kneading behavior.

I am familiar with kneading behavior and the reasons behind it, but recently Bailey's nocturnal nuzzling has taken a strange turn. He will climb on top of either myself or my boyfriend, usually straddling an arm or side, and begin exuberantly kneading with all four paws, back legs going the fastest. This will last for 5-10 minutes, and it is hard to discourage him. Last night, my boyfriend thought he had felt wetness on Bailey's belly.

Is this just a variant affectionate kneading, or is this a sexual behavior that needs to be discouraged? Since we got Bailey from the Humane Society, it was likely he was neutered at the age of 6mos, when he was turned in to them.

I greatly appreciate any advice, information, or similar experiences you might provide! Thank you,
-EKO
