My kitten of four months is a biter. He is getting better

Customer Question

My kitten of four months is a biter. He is getting better but some days he does not even want to be petted, he immediately bites. Could he have something physical bothering him?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Can you tell me in what context he bites/scratches?

Does he seem to stalk you, pounce and then do so?

Or is it just when you try to handle him? Any particular area on his body he is reluctant to have touched?

Does he hiss when doing so?

Is he an only cat? Indoors?
