Hello I have a tabby cat that is 3 years old. Sometimes he'll get mad at me and jump at my leg or arm (if I'm sitting down) and bite me. He does not attack my husband. I'm concerned because I have a baby at home, and I don't want him to attack the baby. Is there a way I can stop this?
You may also want to shake a can of pennies as well. Also, there is stuff that you can buy at the pet store that you can spray on your hands or wherever your cat seems to bite the most that will taste bad and deter the animal from biting.
I adopted a Balinese from a young lady off Craigslist, and she's got hre issue with this too. She'll jump on my lap for attention, but if I'm not giving enough, she'll bite me. Too much attention, I get a bite. She's never broken through the skin, though.
The rescue I adopted a kitten from told me to "yowl" loudly, then shut her in a small, confined space for 5-10 minutes. It has worked like a charm. Although, the yowling makes me feel like an idiot. Cats hate to have their freedom taken from them, and the yowling lets them know that they've hurt you. It has helped immensely.
If you voted Bush a yellow ribbon won't make up for it.
It's not about being a Democrat and losing an election. It's about being an American and losing our rights.
I think it does have to do with the litter box sometimes. He wants me to scoop it immediately after he poops. I get to it as soon as I can, but with a baby around this doesn't always mean immediately. He also bites me when I spend to much time on CC. I think he gets jealous of the computer. I have been closing him in the laundry room when he does it, but I haven't been yowling. Perhaps I should do that too.
Wow..and I thought I had a scary cat! You should definitely watch how the cat reacts when the baby is around. If the cat goes crazy and tries to attack the baby, maybe you should think about giving the cat away to a good home. I mean, I would hate to have to read a post saying that the cat actually did attack the poor baby!
