My 1 1/2 year old male neutered cat snuggles with us and then out of nowhere aggressively attacks unprovoked

His personality seems distressed when he attacks. we put him on the floor and he lunges at us and keeps biting but does not use his claws and does not hiss. I shut him out of the room and he seems to reset. This behavior is has been going on for about two weeks. The attacks are unprovoked in that we are not petting him prior to his aggression. Normally he is very playful and friendly. And ideas or advice would be appreciated. We have not seen a vet yet for this behavior.

When cats act out like this, it may be because they are sick and trying to get your attention (via atypical anger) so that you know something is wrong. A vet visit is in order to check him out. If nothing is wrong, then you can address the behavior issues. Often in cats as in people, attitudinal issues accompany physical illness and stress/pain. Hope your little bud is okay! ^_^
