Ok so I feel like we may have a dominance issue going on with Jake. He never lets me sit in peace, and always walks on top of me, attacks me and bites a bunch of my hair and pulls. He also gets on my head and bites my ears a lot. I put him down about 30 times saying no but the more I put him down the more excited he gets that I'm paying attention to him and comes back even more eager to bite me. He does this not only to me but also to my parents, but it's worst with me. It's just that it scares me that when I try to be firm and say no, it's so clear that he just doesn't get the idea. Nothing works with him. It seems like the more I scold him the more excited he gets for a flight. He has this mean look on his face too...I'm a little worried. I also posted earlier about him biting. Well, he hasn't stopped. I spent an awful long time putting him down and saying no but again, he climbs up to me even more eager after I've put him down. He doesn't care if I hiss at him either. I have tried biting him back, and as soon as he realized there is some discomfort with me biting, he meows a little and I let go. After this he is much more eager to attack me. Even if I don't let go and hurt him a little he still doesn't get the idea and thinks that I am provoking him to play fight even more. He just loves to play rough I guess...He also hits his head on surfaces because he runs so fast that he cannot stop in time. He doesn't mind at all getting himself hit. Is this how a kitten normally acts? He is 11 weeks today.
