Hi all. I'm a new cat owner. I have had my cat for about a month now. He is a very mellow, easy going cat. The only problem I have ever had with him so far is just meowing a lot in the morning to wake me up. Well, last night I had a bigger problem. I came back in from the pool and he was acting normal until I sat down. He came up to me and started sniffing my hand feverishly, then for some unknown reason began nipping at me. The playful nipping turned into hard bites, so I pushed him off me. He then began nipping my ankles, rather hard. I couldn't tell if this was playing or not. It sure didn't seem like it as the nipping nearly drew blood. The only thing I can think of that would have caused him to change behavior so strangely was the smell of the pool water on me or the chlorine. He has always been a good cat, but now I'm on edge and uncomfortable around him for fear this will happen again. Any thought or help would be much appreciated!
