Do MALE cats go into heat?

My 6 month male cat draggs himself all over the floor making a cute little noise. Then he tucks his hind legs under his body with his butt in the air. Is this normal behavior for a young male cat?

If your kitty isn't neutered by now, he should be. His 'cute" behavior is going to turn into aggressive behavior and yowling at the door at night before you know it. If he gets out, he'll do his best to increase the unwanted kitten population in your neighborhood and as far beyond as he can get. Male cats like the males of any species are always " in heat" and ready to mate. They are capable of making babies at any time. Your kitty may only be playing and it may not have anything to do with sexual behavior, but please have him neutered. He'll be much healthier and have a good, long life to be cute.
