Just like her big cat cousins, your little kitten is a natural hunter. In fact, her instinct to hunt is so powerful that she’ll do it even when she isn’t hungry.
That’s because, in the wild, big cats never know when their next meal is coming from. Like them, your kitten is always on standby, ready and waiting for prey to come along.
While your kitten is young, all those little nips are really just playfulness. As she grows up, if your kitten’s coming on a bit strong, try interrupting her game and ignoring her for a while. If she doesn’t get the message, speak to her with a firm, loud voice – but don't shout. She'll soon catch on, and the biting will stop.
