I think you're over excited when playing, and will probably grow out of the biting!!

I was gonna make a thread about this, but this one seems good and I don't want to be repetitive. When I was a kitten i hardly ever bit or anything (scratched when wrestling is about it) but now my human is noticing her hands and arms are all scratched up. Why after a year or two would I start scratching her? I come up to get petted, and roll around, but after two stokes I grab her.
Anyone have any clues on the behaviour change? Thanks!

kind sounds like your just wanting to play lucy and just don't realize your claws are sharp. I am a nipper and will attack peoples legs if I know them and like them. To me if I like you then your just another cat to play with and I am still a little 8 week old kitten that can do no harm...smile I don't realize that I am actually a 11 lb adult. I do have the courtisy to only attack legs that are not bare. Even though I sometimes can't resist nipping a bare foot or two. Sometimes I will seek pets and then decide I want to do a little wrestling instead after a stroke or two and don't realize that my claws are actually in need of a good clipping. Do you have any brother or sisters? I have not played as rough with the servants in the house since my brother boots came along. I finally realized that I was actually hurting them instead of playing with them. But that doesn't mean I have stopped attacking legs.....smile I am trying to teach this trick to my brother..smile
