Why does my cat bite me?

by Mufasa's caretaker

Why does my cat bite? Not hard but can latch on pretty good. Being playful, just seems to do it a lot.

Answer by Kate
he is simulating attacking something and is often a game cats play. It should really be discouraged as sometimes they can become over excited and bite too hard.

When he bites put him on the floor and walk away from him. this is a negative reaction for your cat.
