Why are my kittens biting each other?


Answer by  janeplowmanwindstreamnet (292)

They are probably just playing. Kittens play fight with each other, and sometimes that play can get rough. If they are both boys it won't stop unless they're neutered.

Young kittens to full grown cats will bite and act aggressive towards each other when playing. The biting would only be a problem if they seriously injure each other.


Answer by  smellycat22 (1129)

Kittens may bite, scratch, pounce, wrestle... etc on each other during play. It is a natural behavior that helps them learn to hunt and socialize with the others. It is not necessary for you to stop such behavior unless they are actually hurting each other (ex. puncture the others' skin).

Although it looks mean and rough, this is how kittens play. They are "in training" through their play to hunt. Some kittens also like to try to dominate the other kittens.

If your kittens are related to each other or grew up together, they are probably biting each other as a form of play fighting. Kittens learn to fight and hunt by practicing on each other, their mothers, and sometimes even people.

Kittens play fight - it's their way of learning how far to go, and social etiquette between cats. It's totally normal!
