Question by Abigail’s Mom: Cat behavior?
I have a rescued kitty. He’s six months old and is getting fixed in the next week or two. This cat is the sweetest thing to me and my little boy, and most of the time to my husband. When my husband sleeps the cat cuddles up to him and most of the time will let my husband pet and love on him, but other times he stractchs and bites. This weekend he latched on and had to be pried off my husband’s leg. I have two cats (both rescues) the other cat is female and fixed and does do this. I’ve never had a cat do this. What could be causing behavior???
Husband is going to get the bite looked at today at the doctor.
Cat is going to the vet and getting checked out and fixed.
This cat literally had to be pried off my husbands leg, drew blood. His teeth were totally in the calf of the leg
He was letting the cat down. The kitten was not socialized when I got him (at about 12-16 weeks)
Only does this to my husband, bo one else
Husband’s leg is healing well. Had slight infection but gone now. I talked to a cat rescue who deals with all types of cat problems and they told me that it sounded like a territorial thing. The cat sees me as his. Please keep answering if you have any other ideas to why though or how to break the cat of this.

if he’s still a kitten, he may be teething and/or playing. sometimes they can be rough.
