He's a cat, if he wasn't doing that he'd be ripping the crap out of your sofa or leaving you little presents on the living room floor.
You look like a mouse?
Sometimes biting means they want to play. Drag a piece of string or let him play fight with a sock. Do NOT strike him. If he bites you, say OUCH or NO then walk away and ignore him for a few hours.
Because you is chewy!
He is just playing, they do that with each other... in his eyes you are just another member of the pack and he wants to play, that is usually how they start, but when done to another kitty they tend to chase them around after they run off.
He probably does not think your spouse will be as fun to chew, that or he thinks they are the head of the pack and does not want it to be misconstrued as a challenge them because he is way to little compared to humans for that kinda thing.
my cat did that when he was young too...think of it this way, you are a very large moving squeak toy, what could be better
this is how i got my cat to stop, i let him bite me then i picked him up and bit him HARD on the lips/cheek until HE squeaked....
if he bites at your hands while playing or holding him try to remember not to pull you hand out , instead gently, but with firm pressure push your hand back against his jaw/mouth...they hate that and helps them learn
or you could just spritz him with a water bottle
Cats bite to play with you and other bites are "kisses" . When they bite too hard they do not mean harm!! I read this in a cat magazine!! My 3 bite me and my hubby!! They will lick and groom you too!!
My cat does the same thing too. If I'm walking across my yard after dark, he springs out on me and nips my leg. It's disconcerting but also quite funny. I always say "Ouch"! That hurts! It must be a lot of fun for him!
Because it loves you! My cats bite me and the two that love each other the most bite each other the most!!
Aww c'mon. It's a sign of affection. 8)
OMG! You're a vampire!
male cats bite to show you that you are his
I had a flame point that would do it to me he was also the most talkative cat I have ever seen..he would vocalize constantly
Wants to let you know who is Boss :)
he or she wants to play. and if the cat clamps down hard, it just means he or she is a bit loony.
