4 Proven Tips on How to Stop Kittens From Biting and Scratching You, Your Hands, and Your Guests
How can you stop kittens from biting and scratching at you and your hands when you’re playing with them? Are you tired of the pain and embarrassment when they bite and scratch at you and guests?
Not only are bites painful, but they can sometimes cause you to neglect playing with and loving your kitten and cats in general. However, there are some easy, quick tips that I learned to stop kittens from biting when I had the same problem myself with my 2, 7-week old kittens.
1) NEVER play with your kitten or cat with your hands. This means using your hands to play rough, to nudge, or to make quick motions with your hands. This will activate their natural instinct to pounce, stalk, bite, and scratch at whatever’s messing with them or “scurrying” around, similar to prey behavior.
