Cats are one of the most popular pets in the world. But they do bite or scratch their owners sometimes. There can be multiple reasons for this:
Most cat aggression usually stems from fear. Being afraid stresses a cat out and makes them attack people and other animals. They usually don’t do this on purpose; they’re simply out of sorts. If you bring a new pet home, your cat may start to feel insecure and jealous. Cats are super sensitive, and they need to know they are loved.
Unusual aggression in typically docile cats can be a sign of a health issue. Sometimes, when a cat is sick and in pain, he or she can attack you. When it looks like this could be the cause of the behavior, schedule a visit to the vet as soon as possible.
Cats love to play. Cats chase each other around the house, pounce on each other, and fight over toys. So they have to learn the difference between unacceptable and acceptable play. That way, they won’t mistake biting or scratching too hard for playing.
Young kittens often bite and scratch more when they are learning how to play. This thing subsides when a kitten reaches four months or so.
A move, a new baby, a new pet, visitors in the home: all of these examples are changes to your cat’s routine that can add stress. Cats are creatures of habit. They tend to sleep in the same places, play in the same areas, and eat at certain times. If there is a disruption to their schedule, cats may feel overstimulated and confused, and they may resort to biting.
