Dealing with cat aggression

One of my cats is pretty aggressive compared to the others, sometimes for no apparent reason.

Anyone got any tips on how to combat this aggression?

Yesterday he drew blood on my friends arm after my friend had been stoking him then he suddenly turned. Today he attempted to bite me when grooming but couldn't because he has a collar on from the vets due to an injury on his head from fighting the other neighbourhood cats.

Some cats are easily stimulated and cant handle too much of grooming, attention, etc. They do give signs, you just have to be aware of these signs.

Little Chiquita still get's over stimulated easily, she's better then she used to be but you just need to watch for the signs that kitty has had enough, ears laid back and swishing tail.

If I had a cone on my head, I'd feel pretty cranky too. I agree with others that overstimulation can trigger bites with some cats....yep gotta watch that tail, ears and eyes (may be dilation).

I totally agree with the others. Cats can be sensitive to the touch. Some cats will just walk away when they had enough, others feel the need for a more direct form of communication like biting.

You can gauge how much is too much from experience. Just stop before it gets to that point.
