Why does my cat bite me?
My male cat who has been neutered and is nearly 2 years old has started biting me. He is very affectionate on the whole.
I understand why he bites me while I am stroking him and I am learning to notice the warning signs although often there aren't any!!! However, last night he climbed on to my bed while I was asleep and bit me on the side of my face. It really hurt and he was reluctant to let go! Was he just looking for some attention in the middle of the night?
He usually sleeps at the bottom of my bed and never disturbs me so I don't know why he did this last night. I don't want to banish him from my bedroom, but I am worried that next time the bite could be even worse. I don't think my cat is displaying aggresive behaviour as such, but even so I don't want to be bitten every day or be afraid of my cat which is how I am starting to feel.
As I type this he is trying to climb on my lap and nudge the lap top out of the way. I know he loves me really.I am dreading going to bed tonight! Any one got any ideas?
