Any outdoor cats near your house/apt.? Stray cats around can be upsetting for indoor cats because they can smell them outside. Pushing or physicallly reprimanding him doesn't usually work.....so prepare yourself and get some things in your pocket to distract him just before he looks like he's thinking of biting you. Toss a small ball of foil/paper, twist tie, a small stuffed mousie. If you distract him successfully, give a little treat. If that doesn't work, just get up and walk away from him, completely ignoring him, and close yourself in your bedroom or bathroom if he's attempting to follow you. Also, give him some outlet for his energy, with at least two play sessions/day with a fishing pole type of toy like "Da Bird" or a teaser toy with feathers on the end..... Let the movement imitate a bird flying around and landing, and occasionally let him catch it. When he seems to be getting tired......then praise him and give him some treats. Good luck! hope some of these suggestions work out for you and Pook.
