New cat love nips
« on: May 09, 2013, 10:13:53 PM »
Today I adopted a 3 year old black cat from a shelter. He was once a street cat and he's been in the shelter now for 6 months in a cage. He's adapted quickly and well to our house and is very very affectionate. When he's purring and getting love, he nips a lot. He has also gotten my legs a few times while he's rubbing against me. Not enough to hurt but it's startling sometime and I don't want people to be scared when they come over and give him love. Any ideas why he does this and how I can discourage this behavior? He also gives lots of kisses but I'm not complaining about that :heart:
