I have a 9 week old kitten that is biting alot. I had my brother stay with me for a few weeks and unfortunately I think he was mistreating her. I noticed her hiss at him when he would approach her which I had never even seen her do before! He would hold her and not put her down when she clearly wanted down until I would say something. I think it is crazy that he would seriously do little things to her that she did not like even after I had told him not to. because of these kinds of things he was told to leave my home.
But now my kitten is biting a lot. I believe she still trusts and loves me. She nudges my face with hers and my lap is her favorite place. We bonded from the beginning of me having her and she clearly knows I'm her human. But she has been biting alot when we play. She is also biting blankets, the corners of shelves etc and I'm concerned. I wonder if it could also be pain and or teething, possibly inbreeding causing aggression?
I'm trying to do a couple of things to correct the biting. I try to devote time everyday to play with her so she gets her kitten energy out. And I try to show her that I don't like it when she hurts me by stopping playing and ignoring her. But she gets so aggressive at times it cannot be ignored. I just want her to be ok and not to grow up biting people. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
