Help!!! Kitten Biting!
My little kitten, whose about 12 weeks has a little Jackle n’ Hide complex going on.
He’s absolutely adorable and snuggles with when I get home from work which is great! But he’s been scratching and biting a lot lately so we had Soft Claws put on him temporarily, and he seemed to adjust smoothly and doesn’t mind them now, but that hasn’t stopped the biting of course, can’t get Soft Teeth right lol kidding kidding.
He’s not biting to be aggressive, he’s biting to play and it bloody well hurts. I pick him up by the scruff of his neck, say no and place him on the floor.... And he jumps right back up and mauls by thigh, so I do it again and again and again.... He finally gets the point and stops biting only to do it again 30 minutes later when the man gets home from work.
The worst is when we go to bed, holy crap, it’s like the moment of the day he’s been waiting for.
It’s like a little black demon rabbit on our bed. He dive bombs my face, attacks anything that moves, borrows under the covers (that’s his favorite) and then bites his way down to my feet. We’re talking biting my back, my butt-cheek, my thigh, my calve and then finally my feet, but by that time I’ve taken him off of the bed and locked him out.
He doesn’t stay in our room now, but still... How do I stop this biting behavior? It hurts! We don’t play with him with our bare hands and we make sure to put him on the ground and stop playing with him when he starts up and I have even tried the limp hand... Nothing is working.
