|Tristan is 10 months old now and he's a real sweetheart for the most part. When we first got him, he nibbled on us if we weren't petting him enough, etc. He has never bitten us hard enough to break skin even though he has the capability of doing so. But he's still doing it. In the middle of the night, he comes up to us and finds our fingers and bites them if we aren't petting him.
Also, when he's being really hyper, he will sprint around the house and if we come within his path, he will jump on our legs and sometimes bite. It's never a hard bite, again, just a little nibble.. it's almost like he's playing tag or something because he expects us to chase him once he gets down.
We give him quite a bit of structured playtime and he has tons of toys to play with on his own, including a cat tree and a window perch.
How can we get him to stop nibbling on us? We have tried saying "Ouch!" very loud and gently putting him down on the ground from the bed in the middle of the night. He doesn't respond to it and just jumps right back up and nibbles. We also have tried using a squirt bottle. No response either. He will run away but just come back and nibble again.
