4 MONTH OLD KITTEN

SO I KNOW MY KITTEN IS A BABY AND ALL, BUT HE IS VERY NERVOUS, HE WONT LET US PET HIM UNLESS HE IS SLEEPING. HE ALWAYS BITES US AND NOT OF THE METHODS I HAVE USED LIKE SQUIRT BOTTLE THROWING A TOY NOTHING STOPS HIM FROM MOSTLY 99% OF THE TIME BEING IN ATTACK MODE. IS IT COMMON THAT HE JUST MIGHT BE JUST AN OUTSIDE CAT. bECASUE I DO NOT WANT HIM OUT SIDE.

IS HE EVER GONNA CHANGE?

Answer by Kate
Hi
well at four months old he is starting to move into adulthood and all the behaviours he is showing are consistent with a cat learning how to be a cat, i.e hunting, chasing etc also the he will be moving into sexual maturity and the aggression could be part of this. having him neutered in the next few months will help to calm him down and reduce the aggression.

regarding the biting etc, it is very important that kittens learn how to play nicely and to interact with other animals and people so that as he gets older injuries are not caused.

Please see my web page about how to discipline a cat when they bite etc here

Also and I know this may sound odd but i have a web page about how to play with your cat, as this teaches them the difference between play and fighting etc.. here is the page
