What would make a loving neutered male cat that we’ve had for thirteen months start biting us? It starts out as play–jumping out at us and wrapping around a leg and nipping, then gets more vicious. We tried squirting water but this was taken as a challenge and he became more determined to bite. We usually resort to “time out” until he forgets about it. But that is a nuisance. Any advice?

Dear Cat Lovers,
What about getting some of those police doggie training gloves? Biting should be fun for the whole family!
Ok, seriously. Oh, wait, I don’t have to be serious! I’m a cat!
