Cat Aggression – Part 2
If your new kitten attacks you, it probably will not hurt. But never encourage this behavior because you do not want him to grow up thinking that climbing up on people’s legs is an acceptable behavior. If he attacks you when he is an adult, it is definitely not cute. He must learn to attack only his own belongings.
– If he just growls or hisses, just walk away.
– If he actually bites you or scratches, say, “Ouch!” immediately and sound hurt even if it really did not hurt. Rub your bite and walk away.
– If he is a kitten and you are confident you will not get hurt, pick him up and set him down pointing away from you. Walk away. If he persists, lock him in the bathroom for five minutes. If he is still feeling feisty when he comes out, have a lure toy ready and play with him when you let him out.
