My cat is too old and fat (and spayed and female) to be horny and humping things.
Someone posted a link about the false nursing thing, which is exactly what she is doing. Sometimes she'll even chatter a little bit and she'll get all weird with her legs, pushing back against the blanket on my lap. She stops after several minutes, curls up in a ball and goes to sleep. She's not trying to hump me or the blanket, it's normal cat behavior. She's female, she's old and we had her spayed at a year old. I've owned my share of male cats over the years, as well. All were neutered as kittens, none ever humped anything but all did the same thing with the kneading and chewing on the blankets. The two cats my mom owned did the same exact thing and she had them both neutered as kittens, too.
If your cat truly is humping things, it's time to get him neutered and he'll stop. He won't stop the false nursing, though. It's a natural behavior and I've seen it with every cat I've ever owned or lived with.

Does anybody think there is an increase in cats and dogs showing these sorts of emotions? Or is there just more videos of it? Because I saw a video of a dog carrying a dead dog off a freeway after it was hit by a car. Could nature be trying to tell us to look after each other more?
Female cats transport their kittens from place to place using their teeth to hold them by the scruffs of their necks. Kittens have an instinct to stay completely still when their mothers pick them up by the nape of the neck, and adult cats don’t entirely lose this innate response. The tom cat uses this neck bite to hold the female immobile and to protect himself if she decides to bite or claw him. While some find this behaviour alarming as the mating appears forced, in reality male cats only have the opportunity to mate when females allow it.
