Help!

I knew that eventually we'd run into this, but I'm not really sure what to do. Stanley, who is just about 7 months old, is reaching a point where we have to get him neutered. The problem is that the vet won't neuter him until he's through with his antibiotic regimen to get rid of the chlamydia (makes sense). In the meantime, we keep catching him attempting to 'make love' to our blankets, bathrobes, towels...whatever's soft and fuzzy. He's not spraying, and not overly aggressive, I'm just unsure what to do about it! Obviously we can't let him do this...but I don't feel right disciplining him for something that his instincts are telling him to do, you know?

I'm just kind of at a loss...it should only be another month at most before we are able to have him neutered. Any similar experiences/ advice/ etc???

I wouldn't worry too much if he is only doing that.
Every once in a while Tyler (who was fixed at 6 months and is now 17 years) will do that to Bean. I just gently push him off of her. I think it annoys her when he does it.
I was told to do that if the buns did that when we were bonding them. Teddy has his special "friend". He is not nearly as playful with his "friend" as he used to be.
Good luck - and it will be better once he can be nipped.
