I lost my cat after 18 years in the middle of January. I adopted a kitten from the Humane Society on January 31, 2007. She was very sick and so she had to go to the vet for a few weeks to get better. She is a very cute kitten, but she bites. She was 3 months old when I adopted her so I guess she about 9 or 10 months old now. She attacks my feet and bites my husband so hard she draws blood. He reprimands her like he did with our previous cat, but nothing seems to work. She seems malicious when she does it. She is otherwise a wonderful cat, except for her constant talking which drives my German Shepherd crazy. The Vet told us to spray her with a water bottle when she cries, but it works only when I have a water bottle handy. He said if that doesn't work then to put a little real lemon in the bottle. My biggest problem with her is her constant bitting. Can anyone help me.

I would tell her no and ignore her. Sounds like she needs another cat to play and wrestle with. She is very young and will probably grow out of that behavior.

I also think she will grow out of it, Shes a baby so she's prolly doing it just to play. Tell her no when she does it. Does she have toys? try to find some good toys she likes might put her attention on the toy and not on you. Play with her and if she bites tell her no and bring her to her toy and show her thats for playing. It worked with my cat when she was a kitten.

I agree with Princess; Harry loves to bite my arm, hand, foot etc. It can be quite sore. I just clap my hands and shout no at him. If he won't stop I get other toys and play with him so he can chew those instead. I know he'll grow out of it eventually; I'm just enjoying his kitten-ness as much as possible at the moment!!
