I found my cat back in June 2019, I named him Ferguson. He was young. Maybe only 2 months old. He was malnourished and sick. I took him to the vet and got him feeling better. He was so weak he wouldnt even play, it took him a while to even show interest. He slowly turned around and was a normal kitten. As he started getting older he started getting more aggressive towards me. I never played with him with my hands, never yelled at him or scolded him. What he does is he will pounce at me and grab on with his claws and bite down and refuse to let go. I can't figure out any kind of trigger or pattern. It could be when I'm laying in bed or sitting on the couch, walking by him, interacting with him, or I could even be in an entirely different room. Sometimes theres warning signs, such as him flicking his tail, other times theres nothing. He has pierced completely through my right ear with his claw (seen in the picture), he bit me through my ball cap and left a hole in my head, and has cut up my legs, arms, and fingers pretty bad. He will have his sweet moments with me. But I don't trust him anymore and I'm honestly scared to be around him. I'm terrified he is going to catch my eye with his claws. I have tried claw caps many times and he just pulls them off in one sitting, no matter how hard I try to distract him. The weirdest thing is he doesn't do this with anyone else. Not my boyfriend, who we live with, or any strangers that may come through the house. He even had to stay at my moms for a bit last month and didnt attack anyone there. I don't know what to do. He was fixed at 8 months old (the earliest my vet does it). I was really hoping it would help but it hasnt at all. Does anyone have any advice?
