I also use the water bottle. That's the only form of "punishment" that we use. And my cats know that if they get sprayed they have been bad. Granted, I usually only resort to it when my "angry" tone of voice doesn't work. Most of the time now all I have to do is shake the water bottle and they will stop doing what they are doing.

Same here animalfriend. Now when my cat sees the water bottle coming out, she stops immediately.

Chai has not been spayed yet, still too young. She only just got into heat. We will probably soon. I don't want to spay her in NYC though, I have a family Vet upstate. Plus she has a hernia they wanted to remove during the spaying, kill two birds with one stone kinda thing.

We keep her claws clipped as often as we can, but she likes to use her evil kitten teeth more than claws anyway. She bites like a viper.. she's so fast. Usually I have no time to even grab the water bottle cause she's gone!

We'll see though, I have the water bottle now. Clipping her claws last night ended up in a destroyed hand (seriously... if you say the scratches I have...!) and both me and Steve's clothes COVERED in cat fur. I swear cats can shed on command!

We'll see how it goes. I'm also trying positve/negative conditioning modes. "Good girl" when I pet her with no fus "bad girl!" when she bites or goes to.

That biting seems to be a ferel cat thing. The only cat bits that I have ever gotten have been from ferel cats.

This is the season for wearing you cat to work week. I brush my cats with one of the fine tooth wire brushes. They love it and you would not (well yes you would) believe the fur that comes off.

PS being in season probably adds to her recent worse behavior.

Dixie my parakeet, always bites my mom and me. I simply put him in a time-out cage and ignore him. The worst punishment is to ignore the parakeets. And he still hasn't learn his lesson.

Welcome to the forum - Just so you don't think we are punishing our keets with a water bottle - this is a cat that is misbehaving.

I agree with BLR -if she is in heat she might be crankier than normal. I have heard of spraying water at them for misbehaving too-problem being some cats don't mind it all LOL I know my sister's cat could care less if she gets sprayed. I've also heard to use something that you can shake that will make alot of noise-like a can with marbles or something in it.
Good luck breaking her of bad habits. Cats sure do have a mind of their own and are usually very very stubborn!

this honestly sounds like typical kitten behavior.

kittens learn to play from litter mates and from mom, kittens that dont have that dont learn it.

kittens and puppies can be fixed at 8 weeks of age and the earlier the better.

if you want your animals to 'fear' you then i honestly have no advice to give you...

kittens require ALOT of play, too little and they tend to act out, in attempt to entertain themselves.

water bottles work, but if she is indeed in heat then most likely nothing will work. getting her fixed is a serious issue, it prevents more kittens being born, specially to a cat way too young to reproduce, and it will halt her hormones and calm her way down. this is why its best as early as possible so those hormones never kick in and behaviors arent learned.
