Ways To Stop A Cat From Biting And Scratching

Cats display various types of behavior but two of them are their specific play
behaviors: solitary play and social play. The first is directed towards their toys, paper
boxes etc and social play is towards fellow human or other cats and animals.
The problems occur during the social play behaviors and during such plays,
your cat can cause injury to the fellow human playmates. Those scratches and bites
are very painful and can easily become infected.

Know the reason for your cat’s aggressive behavior to address your cat’s biting. There
could be millions of possibilities that she gets overzealous during play, may be bored
or frustrated, or she is asking you to stop doing something but you haven’t heard
her. If you clear this first step then you can possibly stop your cats biting and


• With Proper Handling.
Look for clear signs when your cat seeks for your attention, don’t force her to stay
near you. If you still wish to pet your kitty then, approach the side of your cat’s face

likely to bite you.


• Don’t always Play with your Hand
If you always play with your cat with your hand, she might think it as a toy; instead,
use a toy that keeps your hands at a safe distance from her mouth.


• Stop the Play
Abruptly call it a timeout, if you realize your cat goes after you during plays. If your
cat bites during such occasions than turn your back immediately. Try not to speak
with your kitty for a moment or resume the game, and your cat will realize this as a
message after a few cycles of these.


• Drain her Energy
This is another way of getting your kitty back in a soft play. Try spending more time
with her until you can see her tired. If your cat stops responding to you then you can
bring your laser pointer and a fish or feather toy tied with the wand. These games will
always keep her working even if she is tired.


• Try Relieving her Anxiety
Your cat may transfer her anger and aggression to you even if they feel it towards
something else, and these results in vicious and unprovoked attacks. You can always
use any calming products available in the market to make them relax from any
situation they are having, but knowing the main cause and sorting this out can be a
permanent solution.
