Siamese baby scratching and biting

My 1 year old siamese cat literally attacks! He jumps up and scratches and bites me and all four of my children. Can I train him not to do this?

Give Him Play time!
by: My2wins

He needs to be exercised and given lots of play time like a puppy. Never with hands but with cat toys. Get a toy on a stick at the cat toy aisle (think fishing pole) and play 5 or mins two to three times a day.

The show "my cat from hell" on animal planet has a lot of great tips for how to change this type of behavior. You can find clips and tips online. I've tried the techniques with my nearly one year old male and they work very well.

Don't think discipline, think play. This will work. Promise.

Scratching and biting
by: Beatrice

This is not acceptable. He must be taught that he cannot do this! He will need a gentle tap to remind him, ( on the nose)speak assertively to him and he will soon learn. If you keep up the routine and are consistent, he will learn. Maybe if he has been neutered it might help too, this may dampen down the hormones.

HOpe this helps,
