After the loss of my three babies, within a 6 month period, I was finally ready to adopt. I adopted a 6 month old kitten from a well known rescue that I used before. I have had him 8 weeks now. The first 2 weeks went well, then out of nowhere this kitten starts suckling/kneading with claws on me and viciously attacking, all four paws, teeth, kicking kinda attacking!
When I try to disengage he bears down harder. Whenever I move, make my bed, open the blinds, etc. he attacks. He tries to escape constantly, climbs the screens, jumps on counters and table, and when I pick him up to correct the behavior he attacks. He attacks people that come over. I have tried everything the vet suggested, searched the internet for suggestions, and nothing has worked.
We have play time four times a day.
He will have a good day and then the old behavior shows up. I am disabled and this behavior is impacting my health. I don't enjoy my new guy, walk on eggshells and dread coming home.
The kicker... when my grandkids come over and the house is crazy he is good.
My apartment is small but I have made all types of accommodations for him. At what point do I say I surrender and take him back?
**The rescue knew nothing about this kitten. Adopted him out before finding out his personality, good with other cats, etc.
