I am at my wit’s end on this.
The new kitten I have loves to bite and scratch, play aggression I presume.
The problem is, no matter how long I play with him, no matter how much distraction I give him, all he ever wants to do is things he’s not supposed to do, namely either jumping onto my desk and making a huge mess, or basically biting and scratching my feet, legs, ankles, hands, or any other body parts he can get his hands on. It’s getting worse, more aggressive, and no sign of ever stopping regardless of what I do to give him something else to do.
Oftentimes he would, without any warning, often at say 6am or so just start attacking my feet while I am sleeping, and I thought I would say not move to basically deter him but he would basically bite harder until it becomes painful or even inflicting injuries, and if I give him distraction it would only work for a few seconds until he finds more appealing target (basically my feet).
Is there anything I can do about this? Would releasing a few rodents work to actually give him something to kill? It’s becoming difficult to sit still because if I do sit still he will attack me.
Weird thing is, he wouldn’t attack me if I were moving about but as soon as I rest, he attacks.
I guess I can see why the previous owner gave him up…
