Vicious Biting

hi all, not sure what is going on with my cat. spayed a month ago, she usually spends all of her time with me. lately in these few days she would attack me (bite) when i asleep, especially my fingers. the bite is not like the usual 'put in the mouth' bite, but a full blown trying very hard to dig my flesh out. and i have no idea what triggers that because she would be purring and relaxing and i, sleeping. the attack will continue until i have to physically remove her, hissing. few minutes after that she acts like it didnt happen. and repeat.

what is happening??? i have been real nice to her. i dont discipline her, but let her know that she is being naughty. 6 month old grey domestic hair.

The first thing I would think is that she may be in pain and lashing out.

My aunt has a cat, when the cat was about a year old she started suddenly attacking my aunt and flipping out at random times. She eventually took the cat to the vet to discover she had a bladder infection; the only symptom my aunt had noticed was the behavior change.

So, rule out any health problems before suspecting it is purely behavior motivated.

Noted. She has been extra affectionate at other times too. I just want to make sure she is ok.

Vet to rule out medical issues. It does sound like either redirected aggression or like she's in pain and lashing out at the closest thing to her when it hits. I would rule out medical first to make sure she's not in pain and suffering.
