Hi,
I am new to the cat forum, and have posted a couple of questions, but I have a concern, I think someone may be able to help me with.

I just adopted a young cat (about 6 or 8 months old) from the animal shelter. She is super affectionate, but will get these fits of biting, scratching. I think she is just playing, but I have a neighbor that had a young cat that did the same thing. Now he is an attack cat, and will tear up anything that approaches him, unless you have food. He wasn't ferral but he sure acts it now!
Sara, my new baby is probably just playing, but I don't want her biting.
Does anyone know how to gently stop this? My sister said to "tonk" her on the nose with your finger, gently. Well, I tried that, and for 3 days she was afraid of my hand. She is over that, but she still bites. I say "ouch!" and "Sara, no bite!" but she scurries off playing, and comes back to do it again.
I have only had dogs from puppies, and know how to train them, and have heard that cats are difficult to train... but I don't buy it. They are too smart.
Sorry for the long post. But thanks!
Jacqueline & Sara
