Anonymous:how do i get my cat to stop biting me?
Neutering/spaying them usually makes them less agressive.
Anonymous:She is 2 almost 3. She is neutered and never used to bite this much, but she is really playing it too rough when I play with her. also sometimes when we dont play she just bites.
i have a male kitten who is three and a half months old and we also faced the biting issue.
firstly don't allow your cat to treat your hand like a toy.
distract him with other toys and sprinkle a little water on him with a firm NO.
this should reduce the biting but if it gets too much leave your cat alone in a room for sometime till he calms down.
neutering reduces the agression and biting in cats to large extent.
BEST OF LUCK !!!
Also as far as I know neutering doesn't have to do with biting, kittens that age bite because 1. their teeth are coming out and just like a baby it hurts and they need to chew in order to ease the pain 2.because that is how they practice their hunting skills, they play rough with their brothers like they are hunting pray, and obviously since they no longer have a brother at that age (when in nature they probably would) the next best thing is our hands, that's why they need toys (and the best thing is a fishing toy so we can make it move like pray). Neutering does calm the cat a lot but will not make him less playful which means the biting will not stop.
Joleen CohenYou should never spray water on a cat in a situation like that, it will make him afraid of you. water should only be used in situations where the cat can't see you because he needs to be afraid of the object (making him afraid of the kitchen counter will make him stop climbing on it), you do not want your cat to be afraid of your hands that will make managing him very hard..do you mean a spray bottle is a pointless tool? it's been working miracles for me and for my friends too. i know there's an opinion it doesn't teach the cat anything but to behave ok when YOU aka the spray bottle is around but why has it been so effective in many cases? for example my cat used to scratch the couch and a spray bottle helped break this habit
