>>He may be overstimulated by the affection. This happens a lot - some cats just don't know when to say "no" and then they instinctively nip at their humans. If he isn't attacking when his tail starts to poof up, then he might not be as upset as it appears. Watch his ears carefully and see if he lays them back against his head. That is the usualy sign that a nip is on the way.

I do believe that MA is right on with the overstimulation statement. My orange cat, Samantha, is exactly like that. She loves for me to hold her and pet her, however when she's finished, she's finished! If I don't get a clue in time, then I get nipped and not too lightly, I'll admit. I've learned to watch her ears and also listen to the sound of her purr, which does seem to slow down when she's had enough.

Here's a photo of Sammi. You don't want to pet her too long because she has sharp teeth!
