I got Pudding around New Year, this year. She has been slowly relaxing and getting happy, after having had two previous owners and spending five months in the shelter (where she lost an eye, poor sweetie) before I adopted her.
In the last two months, when I’m petting her, she has begun to try to bite my wrist. She has also begun to claw me a little bit, so I’ve been scruffing, saying no, and ignoring her for a while when she does. She looks completely confused when I do this.
Yesterday, I was reading Wikipedia’s article on cat communication, which says that a gentle “nip” from a cat is comparable to a human kiss.
Does Pudding think she’s kissing me, when she bites?
