How do you teach your cat to stop biting you?
My daughter's cat is about 18 months old and she will bite when I pick her up or bend down to pet her.
If she is biting you, she may not want as much attention as you want to give her. If you are playing with her and she suddenly bites, immediately stop what you are doing and place her on the floor. Ignore her totally for 5 mins. This must be done consistently. It worked for my cat, Mordred, who has since passed.
Buy a dog, they are always alot more friendly and are easily taught and love you from the start where as cats make you work for it and if they age bad and go senail then they literally go to scratch you like my old two cats did. they went crazy.
Hope this helps, Visit my profile if you would like to see a variety of Hubs .
Thanks Liam and Hannah
either she is just spoiled and in the habbit, or she is irritable. I have had quite a few, and they can get this way when they want something, or are not happy with you...first make sure she is ok, check for ear mites etc that make the kitty grouchy.
If there are no health issues, I have to tell people, animals are very smart, they know what you say and generally your energy and body language. Tell her no and tap her on the noes with your fingers, not hard, but just to say "uh uh" she will get tired of that nose tapping pretty quick, and offer her a reward too, tell her she will get canned food or a piece of turkey if she is good that day....it always works for me...they listen!!
My new cat, she likes to get on the kids table and steel their straws, and it knocks the cups over, I just tel her, if you do that, you get no canned food tonight, well she doesn't do it now...LOL

How do you stop picking at, biting and obsessively clipping your fingernails?I have done this since I was 10 years old, have tried everything and cannot seem to stop. If I don't have a nail clipper nearby, I sort of freak out. Any ideas?
