Love Bites?

hi there! i adopted two male siamese cats from the spca (1 year old and 2 year old) and noticed that one of them will bite our fingers, toes or leg without provocation. and when he does bite, it's the kind of bite that can tear your skin because he will continue to clamp down with his teeth even harder and harder. the other one will lick your hand first and give it a small bite and then lick it again.


i had two siamese cats prior to these who never bit me once! what's the deal? are they love bites or is he biting to eat our fingers and toes?

My Siamese used to bite me like that also when I first brought him home. It would happen mostly at night, he would bite our fingers and noses. That lasted about a month or two, and now he doesn't bite anymore. Give your kitties time, it should stop.

They are so beautiful! I would say they are love bites. Though cats can show "Petting-induced Aggression" They act loving, and want your attention, but as you are petting them, they will bite when you least expect it. Here is my link about the Petting-induced aggression.
