Cats that bite

Escrito por Mundo Cachorro

Your cat is charming but he has a flaw: sometimes he bites you, and this is not pleasant. We know.

It should not be forgotten that nibbling is a cat’s way of expressing itself. Many times a cat will bite because it is angry or frightened. It is also possible that he may try to bite us because he is unwell. Aggressiveness may be a symptom that something is wrong with the animal, perhaps it has been the victim of an aggression, or it is sick and reacts this way because it feels vulnerable or disoriented. In other cases, a cat willtry to bite us simply because it is playing and looks at our arms as if they were fun toys that move, the hunting instinct kicks in. The latter tends to occur especially in small kittens.

Why does my cat bite me?

The first thing you should know is that every cat, like every person, is a different world. There are cats that are very affectionate and seek cuddles, other cats that are more surly or spiteful. And there are even cats that get nervous when you caress a certain area of their body, for example when you spend more time scratching their belly, your cat may get bored and bite to tell you “Enough of this, let’s move on to other things”.

In addition, they have the hunting instinct inside them, even if they are domesticated. A kitten will want to moderate everything that moves, including your hands. They do it by playing.

Hormones also play a key role in a cat’s nervousness. If you have problems, never use violence, and consult a veterinarian.
