Cat bites while playing

My cat has this nasty habit to bite me while playing. She bites quite strong and she would not let go. I do not know ho to teach her to stop. I have read some articles mentioning that I should definitely not try to pull my hand out of her mouth, since her instinct will make her bite even stronger. So I tried to push my hand rather than pulling it, but she still does not let go. I also tried to scream or cry, but she is not easily touched. I love playing with her, but it gets quite painful sometimes! Not to mention that my hands are always scratched and ugly! I am curious if there are really ways to cure my cat from this habit.

We have had many cats over

We have had many cats over the years, one or two of them do get quite excited when playing, especially when you rub or tickle their belly. I have had many bites and stratches in the past and yes they can be very painful. To the cat your hand id like a small creature that they have hunted down, they will want to tease and torment it by stratching and biting as they do outside. This is quite natural and is probably part of your cats nature, some cats play hard and some are more subtle with play. We had a cat once that did the same, but she also seemed to laugh when you tickled her belly. I'm sure she did it do distract me, because it was so funny I used to forget that she could really have a go at my hand and normally did catch me off guard.  Try using toy that have some length to them, so your hand isn't so near to your cat.


I hope this helps


Also have a look at the link below to a book about cat biting.

Cats temper

I think that cats have different temper the same as humans do. My cat loves playing, sometimes I get tiny little scars from her nails.

I have seen few cats going really mad while playing. Usually it's related to changes in cat's temper after castration. Once some of friends cats attacked my boot while I was passing by. Very strange behavior.

There could be many different reasons for your cats behavior. I know that some cats learn to play soft when they grow up. They have to learn light bites while playing with friends.

Good luck with your cat :)

My cat does the same thing.

My cat does the same thing. Cats bite people for various reasons. Sometimes it is on purpose, perhaps due to fear, and sometimes the cat didn't intend to inflict harm, but was just playing too roughly. It's important to train your kitten early on not to bite, and that includes not using your hands as playthings. You should try diverting her attention by providing cat toys that keep her amused. Toys like Turbo scratcher, ping pong balls, a ball of silver paper, a feather, a toy mouse can keep her amused for hours.

As for any large purchase, the first step in buying a bicycle is to figure out what kind you are looking for.
Here are the various types of[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/alloy-road-wheels]alloy bike wheel[/url] bicycles—including the racing bike, touring bike, mountain bike, hybrids,
and tandems. Be sure you understand what each bike offers so you can decide what bike is best for you.
Do not underestimate[url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/disc-wheels]bike disc wheels[/url] the importance of getting the right bike for your needs.
You're not likely to get excited about riding an uncomfortable bike that can't take you where you want to go.
A well-chosen bike, though, will make you want to ride.

Think about what you'd like to do with the bike. Will it be strictly for exercise and recreation?
For long-distance touring? For off-road riding? Would you like to get into racing?
If you are shopping [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels]carbon road wheel[/url]for your first bike and don't know exactly what sort of biking activity you'll enjoy most,
it's best to get a versatile bike, such as a hybrid, that is suited for a number of different kinds of riding.
Remember though, [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com]yishun bike shop[/url]while hybrids are good for general use, their middle-of-the-road design means
they won't be as well-suited for any one purpose as a bike designed specifically for that type of riding.
For instance, hybrid wheels are apt to warp if subjected to the rigors of the trail.
For that reason, many riders find mountain bikes even more versatile than hybrids.

It may be difficult to believe that buy sound cloud followers biting is a form of communication especially after your cat has nipped at you during what you thought was a nice petting session but it is. Cats may bite because they're scared, because they don't feel well, or simply because they don't want to be touched anymore. buy soundcloud bot

  For those of us with Suzuki


For those of us with Suzuki Outboards Sale a reasonable fear of the ocean, this is a worst case scenario: Last week, Dan Suski, 30, and his sister Kate Suski, 39, chartered a fishing boat in St. Lucia. Things were going fine, despite the rough seas, and the siblings even managed to hook a 200-pound marlin. They were battling the giant fish when water rushed onto the boat and flooded its engine room. As the captain radioed for help, another surge Yamaha 4 Stroke Outboard of water swamped the boat. At that point, the captain tossed the Suskis life jackets and ordered them into the ocean.


"He said, 'Jump out! Jump out!'" Kate Suski recalled in a telephone interview Thursday with The Associated Press.


The captain and the first mate soon joined them and Yamaha 150 outboard, five minutes later, the boat sank, leaving the group stranded at least eight miles from shore. The group stayed put for the first hour, awaiting rescue. No one came. The group started to swim, but the rough waves caused the Suskis to became separated from the captain and first mate. "We would just see swells and gray," Dan Suski said.


Hours went by. A helicopter and search plane arrived but failed to notice the two siblings. They continued swimming. Eventually, the sun went down.


"There's this very real understanding that the situation is Yamaha outboard motors dire," Kate Suski said. "You come face-to-face with understanding your own mortality ... We both processed the possible ways we might die. Would we drown? Be eaten by a shark?"


Neither could stop thinking about sharks. "I thought I was going to vomit I was so scared," Kate said.


Finally, after 14 hours, they came within 30 feet of land only to discover the coast was covered with cliffs, making it impossible to climb from the ocean. “We knew we would get crushed,” Kate said.


They kept swimming, Yamaha outboards Sale finally finding a small stretch of sand. Once ashore, they collapsed before again going into survival mode to avoid hypothermia. They hiked into the island and huddled together, covering themselves in grass and brush to stay warm. They spent the night like that, only moving when the sun rose. It took three hours before they found a farmer, who called police and gave them water and crackers.


They would later find out that the captain and first mate had been rescued after 23 hours in the ocean.


Despite dehydration, severe tendonitis and Honda outboards Sale cuts over their feet and back, the couple didn't blame anyone for the ordeal.


"We are so grateful to be alive right now," Kate Suski said. "Nothing can sort of puncture that bubble."
