get a stuffed mouse on a string and let him/her chew on that, and give the cat a treat after play.

YES! Use your hands for loving contact, not bait for an attack.

Please be nice to the little kitty. We humans don't understand sometimes. Just please be patient and nice.

Re: A biting Cat
My second thought here is this could be a confused male cat trying to fuck your wrist in a dog like display of hierarchy. The finger biting thing is left over instinct from cat sex. You have a cat/dog. Research is your friend . I did none here.

Re: A biting Cat
Normal cat behaviour.

I bet you didn't realize your cat was stalking you out before he bit you?

If you look for it, you can stop it before it happens. Cats get this wacky look in their eyes before they bite--it doesn't look mean, just wacky.

For cats, it's just playtime stuff. They have very powerful jaws and sharp teeth. If they really wanted to bite, they could chomp chunks out of you easily.

Re: A biting Cat
He's a tom cat? That kind of explains it. Don't expect 100% docile behavior from a tom cat. I've got a feral Tom who I have been feeding outside for over five years, and I still can't pet him. He's a beauty, a really fine guy.

Re: A biting Cat
Cats bite. It's no big deal. They give off signals before they do, usually. Most of the time is if they think you're playing, or you pet them too long, or at a wrong angle or some stupid thing, and you piss them off.

My cat was a declawed stray when I found him, and so he got into the habit of biting for defense. He nips me when we're playing, but he'll bite hard (draws blood and everything) if he misinterprets what I'm doing and gets defensive. He's a good boy, though. Love the little bastard.

Your cat is most likely normal :)
