|I've had my kitten now since he was about 3 weeks old (No, I did not take him away from his mother). Ever since I've had him he's always playfully bit me every now and then...especially when he mistakes my hand/foot for a toy. But now it's gotten worse because he's getting older (almost 7 mo) and his jaw is getting stronger.
I've talked to a few people about this and they have said that it's because he was taken away from his mother at too early of an age and wasn't taught that biting is bad! He normally will bite me when we're playing, in the morning when he tries to wake me up for breakfast, and then a few hours later once I actually wake up. Mostly when I'm in the bathroom doing my duty (he's got me where he wants me lol).
Anyways...It's always been an issue but I always thought he'd grow out of it or maybe it would stop once he got neutered, but no. Maybe once he's a year old? I don't know, but I'm getting pretty tired of waiting. I've talk to vets as well and they said he should grow out of it and that I should try disciplining him by grabbing him by the scruff when he bites, but that just makes him mad and want to bite me more! Sometimes he's downright spiteful too!! Please help!
