Kitten bites! Help!!
Last month I joined this forum when we adopted a very sick (respiratory infection and ringworm) little kitten from a shelter. I am very happy to say she is now 100% better, eats enough for a dozen kitties, and is extremely playful. The problem is that Abbey also bites when she plays--and she bites hard! It seems to be a completely playful bite, but she breaks the skin. She acts like hands are one of her many toys! How do you correct a 13 week old kitten? A sharp NO! like I would do for a puupy has no effect. We love everything about Abbey but this. Is it a stage she will grow out of? Should we just wear gloves when we play with her?
Also we need help in socializing her with our dogs. So far we have strictly supervised their interaction--the dogs seem friendly but Abbey is aggressive toward them and has tried to bite/scratch them.
Any help is appreciated!
