Enacting with your cat builds up a bond and is also pleasurable and is fun until the teeth and claws cause pain and damage.
The vast majority of aggressive behavior in felines can be traced to very early kittenhood upbringing and breed type. Keep in mind a cat’s natural instinct is to use his/her handy, dandy claws and teeth. These are the amazing tools your cat has to live to tell the tale in life and demanding your cat to not use can be likened unto us not being allowed to use our marvelous thumbs to perform every day chores. Nevertheless, the use of teeth and claws to the degree of destruction is not suitable behavior for a family pet therefore you need to find a way to give confidence to your cat to hold back those natural instincts.
The basics of acceptable cat play are recognized in the antics of a litter of young kittens. If one kitten plays too aggressively, the other little littermates will reprimand that kitten with a bite or two a mean meow or growl—a catly warning for the carried away brother or sister to stop. This natural response is effective and lays down the rules teaching that playtime can engage claws and teeth but should be gentle at the same time.
when a kitten is removed from its litter too early which is before 12 weeks, he/she will very likely build up behavioral problems, so even the nicest, sweetest little kitten will need continual rule reinforcement’ to evade natural rough play behavior. The first thing to do is cease playing with your kitten when he/she plays too roughly. Be stringent with this, don’t give in, no matter how cute kitty is and in a short time your cat should realize that aggressive play is not a good thing. Remember that punishment will never work with determined cats so the superlative ways to change a cat’s of course, behavior are to ignore and reward.
Kittens often display pouncing behavior, typically by hiding behind doors or under furniture and pouncing on fast, little feet as they pass by. This is a blast for your cat and fulfills that inbuilt instinct to pursue prey, but for your feet, it’s a different story. The only way to stop this is to make it less pleasant for your cat. If you observe your cat preparing to attack suddenly, a loud clap will doo the trick, but never shout or punish your feline because this aggressive behavior could very well make her/him afraid of you.
It’s not unusual for a cat to suddenly bite you when you are stroking them, seconds after they were purring, rubbing and seeming to enjoy the loving session. There is an assortment of hypothesizes for this and depending on the feline it could be that the cat has had sufficient stroking, that you have touched a sensitive spot, or that the cat has determined to turn this warm bonding time into playtime
As a rule you can read the delicate, little signs that kitty’s mood is changing such as movements of the head, or a flicking of the tail and it’s wise to stop stroking before kitty lets you know the session is officially over.
