Question
my 6 month old kitten bites my fiancee and I any chance he gets...Is he teething still?....he 'is gettng his "equipment" takin care of in a week.... will that help any?

Answer
Hi, no this is known as aggression play. Your kitten is in the process of learning how to hunt etc. Normally they would learn from their brothers and sisters but without them he is using his seragate family as practice.
When he bites move away from him straight away don't shout as this is a positive reaction to him and leave the room for a few minutes. they have to learn that biting people is not a good thing. Also never play with him using your fingers etc. Always use a prop like a piece of string.
