How Do I Get My Cat to Stop Biting?

I have a two year old tabby, male, all 4 paws are declawed. How can I stop him from viciously biting me, honestly for no reason? I'm diabetic and my vet suggested the 4 paw claw removal. He attacks so spontaneously I am becoming afraid of him. I have sprayed him with water (he likes water). Any suggestions?

Have you had the cat a long time? I have a rescue cat that had been declawed (front only) when I took her. I don't know what her early life was like, but she also bites/attacks and has strong jaw muscles. When she wants to injure she sure can. I've had her 1 1/2 years and just now is she mellowing out a little, she chews on my fingers sometimes, but I can't trust her. The only thing I've found that works is to leave her alone, too bad, because I really wanted a cuddle kitty, but she isn't that. With the diabetes as a complication, you may have to give her up if she bloodies you too much. If you do, treat her a s special needs cat and try to find a placement that will be able to work with what they have. Good luck. I hope it works out and some other reader has better advice. I'll keep watching.
