I have never come across this before myself but i have heard of others experiencing a similar problem. It is either a hormone imbalance on your hunping males side or your other male cat is giving off female type scents. The best thing would be to ask your vet if they have seen this before as they will probably know what could be causing it.
Don't dispair, there is always a reason for these things and usually they can be sorted out. Best wishes

Male cat humping

I had a male cat that did that with my male & female cats 1 right after another. I felt so bad for them & nothing would stop him. I finally got rid of him for the sake of the other cats. They were so relieved after he was gone but I still miss him. He was a beautiful cat. Had 2 be a dominance thing cuz I had 7 altogether. Poor things couldn't eat for him.

I am having the exact same problem and that's how I ended up here. I have 1 female & 2 male cats all fixed. The larger male cat is always molesting the younger male cat. The younger cat gets very upset. It has been happening even more lately. I'm confused as to why especially since before this started they were great cuddle buddies. Now the younger cat stays away from the older cat. Why isn't he bothering the female cat?

I am a rewtired Vet assistsnt. It is possibly a dominace issue, or even urinary tract issues. Always have it checked out, you never know what it could be.
