Hello, my name is***** I have experience and education in exotic/avian medicine in addition to dogs and cats. I am NOT available by phone so you may ignore the request for a phone call if it automatically generates and we will continue the chat via text. I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. It may take me a few minutes to respond as I may be typing up a response or helping another concerned pet owner.
Veterinary Practice Laws of my state only allow me to provide general advice regarding your pet’s health condition. I cannot provide a diagnosis or prescribe medications without performing a physical exam on your pet. I will help you decide if the problem with your pet is something you can manage at home, or if additional diagnostic testing or treatment needs to be performed by a veterinarian.
How old is your kitty? I do have a great article for you on biting in kittens and how to work on correcting it.
Underlying medical causes can sometimes cause behavioral changes in kittens, so if she hasn't seen a vet and the behavior is continuing, you should set up an appointment. but I do have some advice for bitey kittens that I will get for you now.
Here is information on why biting occurs and how to curtail it.
She is likely just in kitten play mode at this time and learning social cues. Its best to have lots of toys and scratching posts around the house to enrich her and prevent her from trying to use you as a scratching and play post.
Do you have any other questions?
Of course! Best of luck! Thank you for using Just Answer.
