Our 7 week old kitten has gotten into a bad habit of biting. Not little nibbles and licks either! He has also preferred his hard food the last couple of days, over wet. Could he be teething? He seems happy enough, playing, eating well, purring, sleeping lots. I also noticed quite a few new back teeth have come in. Any info on kittens teething would be great.
We had one kitten that would chew those pig ears that you buy for dogs. He would take it from the dogs and run away and hide. When I took him to the vet to be neutered, she had to pull some of his baby teeth that didn't fall out. He acted more like a dog than a cat. When he would play with us, he would bite us hard. It took awhile to break him from it. We would just sternly tell him no and refuse to play with him. I think he was more like a dog because when he was a kitten, we took care of a twelve week old puppy for about two weeks. They would play and wrestle whenever they were awake. (09/19/2005)
Kittens definitely teethe. Giving him something to chew on would be helpful. It usually doesn't last too long. They lose teeth, just like babies do. I know that from having one of them stuck in my hand. It's rare to see the teeth that come out.
Training cats is pretty easy. If you grab them at the nape of the neck and wiggle it a little, they think you are their mother and will mind you. They will do this even when they are adults. Just hold the skin at the nape of the neck and say "no". They get the picture very quickly that way.
