My fiancé bought a cat about a month ago. Although I’d much rather have a dog, I’m not opposed to cats. Honestly, Jackpot is an okay kitty. She’s a Maine Coon mix, that was fostered until we brought her home. She’s only about six months and is pretty frisky.
That’s where the problem begins. Jackpot likes to play, which usually leads to her biting. It started out she’d grab at us with her paws (which was cute at first) and nibbling on our fingers. But in the last couple of weeks, she’s been biting pretty hard. It’s gotten to the point where she’ll jump up on the couch and bite at our forearms (even if we’re not playing with her).
Do you guys know how to stop a cat from biting? My fiancé has a four year old son, who really loves his new kitty. I just need some advice on how to curb the biting, before her aggressive behavior starts to cause some bigger problems. I know we’ve only had the cat for a month, but we want to stop this before it gets out of hand.
