Ie: If your sitting on the couch and he pounces on you firmly tell him no and remove him to the floor. Don't ever use your limbs (hands/fingers/toes) as toys or it will never stop. The Neuter will help... are you on NS's mailing list? That's where I took Wickett and they had about 100 cats that day.
If he starts getting mean we do put him down but he'll usually jump up again and attack a little more aggressively and even put his ears back and everything. We don't play with him with our hands just toys. If he gets too aggressive we will actually put him in another room for a minute to calm him down.
We're on the mailing list but they just came here like two weeks ago and were all booked up and the closest place that had an opening was like an hour and a half drive to drop him off.
|I suggest playing with him at least 2x a day with an interactive toy for at least 15 minutes each time. He's probably slightly bored & lonely
I'll try playing with him more maybe that will work but I usually run around with a string for him for atleast 45 minutes. 20 in the morning and then almost a half an hour before we go to bed at night.
