I'm getting bloody covered in scratches from Toots.

She is constantly pouncing on my feet, leaping at my face and just clawing me. She can't even sit on my sometimes without suddenly jumping up at biting me.

I chase away when she does it because it bloody hurts but she keeps coming back and doing it again. I know she's only a baby and it's perfecting her hunting skills but she's really beginning to hurt me now

What can I do?

Lots and lots of toys. Laser pointer play. Throw balls.

PolterCat loves Yeowww toys for chewing.

And don't chase. It's like toddlers, distraction and tiring out works best!

"Grow thicker skin" grin

Can I borrow yours?

When I mean chase I don't mean getting up and chasing out the room. I mean just shooing her away

How old is she? Don't chase her away it becomes a game! Ignore if you can grin

I don't want the cat just the skin! One psycho is enough thanx!

She's nearly 11 weeks. I know it's just a phase but it bloody hurts!

She's settled down now. Asleep on my lap again but I have got to be careful not to touch her. She seems to have this rule you see. She can lay all over me but if I touch she bites

Should have called her Lillith or some other demon type name cos she's a devil cat really
