Video: Why Did The Cat Suddenly Become Biting?
My cat suddenly became biting. She bites her growing kittens more and more and tries to bite me, now by the hand, now by the leg. Like crazy. What happened to her?
Cats rarely bite because they are really angry. This is usually a discreet gesture of protest, indicating that the cat does not like the behavior of the owner.… A cat that is overly played, being overexcited, can also suddenly change its mood and bite. You should not bring it to this, always remember that for a cat, play is associated with a fight, because kittens play with each other not only for fun, but also in order to learn to stand up for themselves in adulthood. And it is not surprising that, when playing with the owners, they easily switch from playing style to power, especially if you tickle the abdomen, since cats in a fight most often scratch each other's bellies. This action, more than any other, awakens the warlike instinct in the animal. For the same reason, some cats ambush and, jumping out from behind furniture, bite their owners' legs. Do not punish the cat for this behavior, it is better to distract it with some toy or treat.
The mother cat, so that the kittens do not indulge, while she licks them, gently but firmly squeezes her teeth around the neck of the kitten, which immediately goes limp and obeys. If he starts to struggle, she grips him with her teeth even tighter in order to calmly finish the procedure. Some cats use the same method to keep the owner's hand or wrist and thereby warn him against unwanted actions.
The grip is usually very soft and does not damage the skin. Some biting cats are wrongly accused of bad temper, although - most likely, they behave this way because of poor health. Cats are such stoic creatures that it is not always possible to recognize that they are sick: often the first and only signal is the fact that the usually friendly animal begins to bite. Often, cats suffer for long periods of time, such as a very painful cystitis or other urological condition, before their condition worsens to the point that the owners finally notice that something is wrong. It is worth eliminating the disease, how the peaceful mood of your cat will be restored.
