Do cats get horny?

A cat’s penis isn’t that different from a dog’s penis. It might be a little smaller, but that’s all. It does get erect when aroused, but just like a dog’s penis, the erection happens when the animal is aroused and is not triggered by outside stimuli. But does a cat get horny?

I think I have read somewhere that the answer to this is yes, but honestly I could not find anything that backs it up. Can anybody enlighten me?

Well, I have a cat and a dog, and for whatever reason the cat’s penis hasn’t yet been tested. My dog’s penis seems to be about 1/8 the size of the average dog’s (or human) penis, and the dogs I have encountered (all females) get a very similar size erection, although it appears it only works once and then is pretty much permanent (if the dog isn’t aroused soon after the erection gets “turned off”). I have only ever witnessed the dog get horny when he’s being stimulated.

If a cat does get horny, it seems to me it would not be the same as the dog’s erections. I haven’t come across this in my research, but it could happen. Just my two cents worth.

I agree with you in thinking that, for the cat, it may be more similar to the dog than we might expect. For a cat it may be more likely to be like the dog, where it comes about from the outside – i.e. it’s hard because there’s pressure from the outside (from another cat or person).

That would also explain why so few people have actually seen a cat’s penis erect, if we assume that it would be smaller than a dog’s penis. I assume that the ones we’ve actually seen, where it’s been erect, have actually been stimulated to some degree, which may in turn account for the erection.

There’s some research on sexual physiology in people with autism, published by the University of South Australia in 2012, in which some aspects of the “normal” (i.e. human) sexual response and some aspects of the sexual arousal of those with ASD were described. These research papers are available online and they are fairly detailed. It is not easy to find these, but they are out there.

However, I can say that the people with ASD, where they engaged in sexual activity, appeared to have an entirely normal sexual response, in terms of having erections, or perhaps arousal, similar to a person with normal functioning. They weren’t actually having orgasms, but they seemed to show sexual arousal at least.

I’m afraid I’m out of my depth here, in terms of scientific research. The more I look into it, the less understanding I have, and the less time I have to research it.

So, is there any kind of research that compares the erect penis of a cat to that of a human? Do you know of any? Or is there a way of measuring cat penis size? It would be good to have an idea, or even just an idea of the average.

A) There are two books that I’ve read that discuss this:

(1) S.S. Stevens. The Sexual Behavior of the Domestic Cat. Baltimore: Pelican Books, 1973. ISBN 0-6911-1620-1

(2) Donald Griffin, Ph.D. The Cat in the Hat: The New Scientific Wonders of Cat Behavior. New York: Viking, 1996. ISBN 0-670-89805-4

B) The Wikipedia article on the subject has a list of sources. But all of the sources are on the net and so it’s a bit difficult to track down any one of them to find out more. The Wikipedia article says, “The sexual behavior of the domestic cat is more variable than that of any other mammal studied.” It also says that while male cats have smaller phallic glands than males of other animals, that does not mean they have smaller penises.

C) Some of the books say, “The penis of the domestic cat is similar to that of man in that the average erect length is 7.3-8.4 inches long.” Others say, “The penis of the domestic cat is less than half the size of the human penis.” So there’s no consensus.

D) One other thing is to note is that, “In a study of sexually experienced male domestic cats, only about 7% of males were measured as having a penile length of less than 5.0 inches (12.5 cm). The proportion of those cats having shorter penises was greater among those who had been neutered than in those who hadn’t.” If there’s a large group of neutered males, and if there’s a group of young males in there as well, that may be skewing the proportion of males having shorter penises. Also, “This study did not examine the relative lengths of penises of same-sex and opposite-sex pairs, but since most pairs involved male-male pairs (86%), the effect of same-sex pairings is expected to be minor.”

It seems that, in most (though not all) cases where cats are said to have unusually short penises, it’s because there’s a larger proportion of neutered males in the sample than there is of intact males. So don’t get caught up in some guy who says “I measured my cat’s penis and it was 12.5 centimeters long. That’s pretty short.”

I’m just putting this out there. It’s not a direct response to any previous posts.

On Friday we did our regular run through the garage, and discovered a number of mice had made their way inside. I don’t see any evidence of them in the house now. They were mostly just scurrying along the bottom of the walls, and on the bottom of the garbage can. I’m guessing that if they’re inside they’re probably long gone.

I don’t want to alarm anyone by saying that mice are very bad, but on our run through, we also found the remains of a mouse that had been squashed. I think the reason it wasn’t even squashed as badly is because it was sitting inside an empty milk jug
