You are here:



My 8 month old Siamese mix has been biting. We have tried giving him "time outs" but the problem seems to be getting worse. He is very restless and constantly hungry. He will attack feet and hands at random We give him tons on love. Play and plenty of food. How can we change this behavior?



well its never easy when you have a cat who thinks that this sort of behavior is ok play.

All you can do is to try and change this behavior over time by using the negative / positive response technique described here


It does take time and patience but i have seen good results with this if the whole family takes part.

best wishes Kite
