my 5 month old tom cat jumping on and biting my female cat.

my 5 and a half month old female cat is just back from vet after being spayed, since her return my 5 month old tom cat who is still un neutered has been jumping on her back and biting her neck. he has never been like this with her they have always been great friends and companions since birth,they are different litters but same household. what is he doing and why right after her spaying operation. i am having to seperate them at present while she recovers am i doing right

Answer by Kate
At 5 months old your male cat will now be moving into adult hood and his behavior is that of a tom cat practicing mating. Tom cats will try to mate with any cat regardless if they are spayed or not.

i would really consider having your male cat neutered soon before any real aggressive behavior begins, it will also make him a more contented less frustrated cat.

best wishes Kate
