Hello - my husband and I just adopted 2 3-month-old kittens and they are terrific. The only problem we are having is with biting. One kitty bites very hard. The other one seems to know instictively that he needs to bite softly when playing with us, but one kitty is over-zealous. Every time he bites one of us we say "no" and then pick him up and put him aside (off the couch, off the bed, or wherever).
I am wondering if this is a good solution or if there is something better. For other behavioral stuff, like climbing on the table, we squirt them with a water, which seems to work well. When I am laying in bed though and the kitty is biting my foot, the squirt gun wont exactly work
Thanks for the link - lots of good information there. I think the crying out might help - basically let him know he has gone too far and if that doesn't work, continue the "no" and setting him aside as we have been doing.
Rocket was a biter when I adopted him and it took about three months of consistent work to get him to stop. Even now once in a great while he'll forget and reach down to bite as I'm picking him up or something, and then he'll remember "I'm not supposed to do that" and he licks me instead.
