Although cats bite instinctively, you can curb this tendency by appropriate training.

Step 1: Engage the cat
Engage the cat or kitten in a game of play fighting. This will arouse the cat’s natural tendency to bite.

Step 2: Stop the game
Stop the game as soon as you see the cat begin to expose its claws or teeth. Wait for the cat to calm down, and then resume the game.

Step 3: Continue playing
Continue playing with the cat. If the cat bites or scratches you, let out a scream. Stop playing and ignore the cat.

Tip
Consider spraying the cat with a spray bottle filled with water if the cat continues to bite you. A small spritz in the area of the cat’s face is enough, but be careful not to spray the cat’s ears.

Step 4: Use the touch method
Observe the areas on the cat’s body that are most sensitive to contact — typically the mouth, paws, ears, and tail. When sensitive areas are touched, there is a tendency for the cat to start biting.

Step 5: Touch a sensitive area
Touch one of the sensitive areas on the cat’s body for a second. Then give the cat a treat.

Step 6: Increase the contact time
Gradually increase the amount of time that you are in contact with the sensitive area. Do this until the cat learns to tolerate increasing levels of contact there.

Step 7: Repeat with other sensitive areas
Repeat this procedure with other sensitive areas that provoke biting. Now you should have a cat whose meow is worse than its bite.

Did You Know?
Cats have two sets of teeth — a first set that is lost when they are young, and a permanent set.

    I dislike this tip. The cat will see the squirt bottle in your hand and associate it with you.

    Funny. I get some people who say `Don`t use the water spray` citing it as violence on violence and other like thsi video that say do use it. I`m going for the waterspray tactic.

    it depends on what breed and personality. not all cats are the same just like human unpredictable characters. you should treat the cat gently and with love and care.

    no water bottle, it creates fear for you, instead of… whatever you want to do with that spray bottle.
