|My cat has turned into a dirty old man!

My cat has recently started humping everything! Our legs, our daughters' stuffed animals, piles of blankets and so on. The weird part is he is 13 years old and this just started (with a vengeance) about a month ago. He was fixed as a kitten and never did this before. It doesn't really affect us too much aside from being embarrassing with guests and occasionally, er, waking us up, but I know major behavior changes should be noted. |
What may or may not be relevant is he was diagnosed with lymphoma over four years ago. He was on chemo for a year but has been medication free since. His only obvious symptom (but it is a major one) is he is prone to blockages a couple of times a year but in between he seems super healthy. But I don't know if it is relevant in case it is suddenly affecting his hormones somehow or something.
Has this happened to anyone else? Where their fixed elderly pet abruptly turned into a horndog (or cat) later in life? Obviously I will mention it to the vet, but for all I know this is (semi) normal.
