Help me make my evil cat nice

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a half siamese (or similar breed) female cat. She is two years old. While she can be very cuddly, she is also extremely aggressive. Most cuddle sessions turn into biting. I can be sitting not even looking at her and she will attack me. This is not playful attacking. She has scratched at my eyes. She will latch on to my arm and bite me until I can shake her off. She does the same thing with my feet. She has always been like this, with some periods worse than others. A year ago I moved across the country with her (attitude the same before and after). Her anger is now more directed at me than it used to be. I live with a boyfriend who she loves, although will still bite. She doesn't viciously attack him. I'm ready to give up on her. Please, what is the matter with my cat that makes her so evil? She is fed regularly, I clean her litter box regularly, and try to give her attention when she isnt attacking. She used to go outside, but when I moved, she for some reason became scared of it, so she is a voluntary indoor cat. I don't want to get her declawed because i want to keep the option of going outside.

how old was she when you got her???
sometimes when cats are taken from their moms too young, they have behaviorial issues, because they didn't learn how much is too much when playing....

playing, fighting, etc... when they are removed from mom too young they don't know these things. 6 weeks is ENTIRELY too young unless she was orphaned, kittens are just weaning at 5-6 weeks. We are not criticizing you either, I know many people give cats away this young and just don't understand.

Anyways, is she spayed? Of course don't declaw her, not only is that cruel, but it will just make biting worse since she lost her number one means of defense (or attack). Have you tried Feliway or Soft Claws?

This really sounds like a behavioral problem that is related to being removed from mama too young...something is also obviously agitating her for her to attack (and it may not be anything you're doing).

You might want to try rescue remedy or talk to a vet about buspar or prozac.

YMMV, but with my Zane all prozac did was stimulate his appetite so that he's eaten himself fat.
