Question by  sboynton (15)

Why does my cat bite me?

I think my cat likes me and I treat her well.

Cats have a certain dynamic. As play increases, your cat's hunting instinct kicks in, leading to biting and other "hunting" behaviors. This is natural, and you can use behavior modification to teach your cat to play acceptably. Don't worry, your cat is NOT trying to be mean to you!

Cats bite for a number of reasons. It is possible she is saying "enough leave me alone" or even "hey pay attention to me". Try reading her body language.

Sometimes if you pet or playfully scratch a cat in certain places (like on top of his head or on his tummy), he can get overstimulated and bite in response. You need to be careful with this. The safest place to scratch a cat is under his chin.

You could be doing something that she doesn't like. For example if she were to have an injury and you touched it she may bite you to warn you that it hurts. Most likely she doesn't like something you're doing to her.

Cats play by biting each other. They like to play with their owners too so therefore they will bite you. As long as you don't bleed, dont worry about it.

Well I have had cats my whole life and I am 47 and I was always told that when a cat bites you (not really hard) they are giving you a kiss. Since cats can't kiss us like we think of a kiss this is how they do it.
