Firstly, my Maxie is a wonderful kitty. She's super fun and as she's growing her personality is just super cute. However, as much as it is cute, she can also be pretty sassy.. I probably should have renamed her Sassy when I got her from her previous owner at about 5-6 months old, lol.
I've read about when kitties bite what to do. Stop, say no, walk away kinda thing. To ignore them for a time is best. I've got a kicker, I've got so many toys. (Maxie doesn't have any other kitties at home, so I know she wants to play with me)
Problem is, after all the times I've stopped and sternly said No when she starts biting, she still does it.
In fact, sometimes when she wants to cuddle, and Im holding her, all a sudden she gets in play mode and starts to bite/scratch. Sometimes she even gives me a gentle but stern meow back if I say "No"! LOL Its not funny, but it is, cuz I can't believe how sassy she is. I mean for a kitty to meow back at me when I say "no" in difiance.. wow. LOL! Its cute but then again, I wonder if need to do more with her. I always have a scratch on my hand or arms.
Oh! And another thing, its cute but also sometimes I get frustrated..I'll be sitting at the computer and if I'm not giving her enough attention and she wants to play, she'll paw/gently claw at my leg or the back of the chair (where my behind is! ) LOL.
She's got a great personality, can be super sweet..loves to play and plays fetch now and then still, has to be in the same room I am 98% of the time, shes very vocal, but also she's very naughty and sassy sometimes and don't listen to momma.
Any other suggestions or clues besides "No" and the walk away for Maxie?
She's just over a year now so I realize this may just be part of her personality but wondering if there was any other ideas
Thanks for listenin!
