A neighbor found a 3 1/2 week old kitten, and gave it to me. The little guy is now 8 weeks. Thriving well and making friends with my two older cats,10 years each.
My dilemma is, Henry, the kitten, tends to be very playful with my hands, biting, and scratching. When he gets too rough, I will repeat "no" in a harsh voice, which causes him to pull back, or stop. However, a few times I must admit, became concerned because he would get in pounce mode, stare at me, and attack my face.
I am not sure how to correct this behavior. Each time he has pounced, I automatically block his attack with my hands. Naturally, this move pushes him back on his hind legs, and I repeat..."no". I tried the aloof act, and he just comes at me no matter what. Normally he is a sweet, kitty.
He is getting older, and I am fearful if this continues he may reach my face and do some damage. Any suggestion?
