We have been working on finding our kittens their forever homes. They are just about 15 weeks old. We are searching for the perfect homes before we let go. Anyway tonight I was taking the weekly updated pictures and one of them attacked me. I have deep puncture wounds on my hand and arm along with a ton of scratches on both arms and my face. This particular kitten has never been too friendly, though he and his siblings have been socialized with every situation I can think of and his siblings are sweet as pie. The camera situation shouldnâ€™t have scared him because they have had the camera in their face since they were born. This isnâ€™t the first time he has gone off either but it is certainly the most damage he has caused. The vet has said that he is healthy. He just seems to have a bad temperament. I really donâ€™t want him attacking a child out of nowhere like this in the future if he were to be adopted. Also he is not particularly welcome in our home anymore to an extent. As of tonight he has been separated from his mother and siblings in a crate until we can figure out what to do with him. I donâ€™t ever like to think of putting animals down but this little guy seems to be seriously nasty. I need the honest non-judgmental opinion of those who may be of help in this situation. The thing that really baffles me is that his parents are both our loving indoor only pets.. neither of them have ever been aggressive in the least bit. His father, our male cat came from a litter of barn cats when he was six weeks old, but thatâ€™s about as close to â€œwildâ€ as he has ever been. I really need suggestions on what to do next. I am really confused and really upset over the whole ordeal. Please be kind.
