Alright, I have a 9 month old cat. This is the first cat I've ever owned. He's an adorable cat and I really love him, but...he viciously attacks me relatively often. I live in an apartment with 3 other guys and I try to leave my cat in my room whenever I'm not here so he doesn't bother them or anything. However, I figured that being cooped up a lot of the time might be why he's attacking me, so for the past 2 weeks I've been letting him rome around the kitchen and living room and my room and he's been a lot better, a lot less attacking me. However, it's not completely gone. A lot of the time, when I'm sitting at my desk on the computer, Mowgli will sneak up behind my chair and leap onto my back, or shoulders or head and sink his claws into my skin and bite me. Whenever he does this, I quickly grab him and take him off, yell "no" at him, and put him in the bathroom for a while to calm down. Sometimes, if I'm not quick enough to grab him, he'll leap onto me, and then jump right back off and run away like he knows he did something wrong. This is the only way he attacks me since I've let him rome around the entire apartment, which is a lot better than when he used to do that plus other random attacks. Anyways, I'm now constantly looking over my shoulder, scared that he'll attack me when I'm on my computer, it sucks. What do you guys think? what could be causing this? should i react in a different way when he does this to me? please please help me and let me know if you need any other information.
