So i took him to get his shots and he was also neutered. As months passed he started to randomly attack me and my parents. playful at first but as time went on he became more and more aggressive and the biting and attacking became more serious. He was still young so i figured he was still learning not to bite so i went through what i knew to stop the biting. first if he attacked me i would yell ouch!! or i would grab the neared object and distract him, or grab a pillow and push him out of the room and close the door. i also tried the light water bottle But none of these worked.
Keep in mind these attacks are not provoked. He is perfectly fine for awhile and he'll come to me and i'll pick him up and pet him and when he wants down i'll let him down. he wont attack or bite. but maybe hours later i'll go to the living room for a drink and walk back and he'll come at me out of no where and jump up to my thy and *bite* me as well as scratch me. and this is no play bite. he bites and breaks skin. he does not bite me as much, but he attacks my mom repeatedly. and my mom will yell ouch! and throw something to distract and he'll just run back up to her and try and bite her again. Its as if he is bi-polar or something. I'm really at my limit on what i can do, i dont want to give him up i love him very much but i cant have him biting and attacking my family, i'm afraid to have people come over because of his random aggression.
on a random note, my cat also recently decided to eat 2 pennies so he was taken to the vet and had his operation he was fine afterword and had a clean bill of health. he was aggressive before and after. also,from what the doctors said he was a perfect angel to them. is it that he just does not like us? would be happier somewhere else?
I wanted to ask if anyone had any suggestions on reasons why this is happening and what can be done to change his behavoir. I have looked into feliaway (sp?) and might try that with my next paycheck. But what ireally want to know is if there is something that am i maybe unconciously doing to provoke these attacks or if there is something bothering him that i dont know about. please help!!!
