Cat Biting

Do You Have A Cat Biting Problem?

Why do cats do that? Why do cats bite the hand that feeds them?

There may be many reasons why your sweet little cat nips you, (or maybe not so sweet and not so little cat.)

One of the first things to consider is: has your cat been injured or is she or he not well?

If your cat has never bitten before and she has recently started nipping at you, perhaps when you try to stroke one particular spot, there could be a medical reason for it. It may be wise to have her checked over by a veterinarian. Sometimes injuries are not obvious.
