Had a stray that a brought in from outside and nursed it up and he loves to play but he bites in play. We just adopted a female cat from the vet who likes to play but does not bite at all. Everytime we have the two out at the same time the male will play a bit but then tackle the female and bite her. its been like 2 weeks and we still have the same issue. Anything that we can do to stop the male from attacking the female????

Keep them away from each other.

Seperate rooms.

That's a tough one. Never ran across that one before.

I'd resort to the old tried and true method of cat training. A squirt bottle full of water.

Male cats are always agressive and bite when they play with other cats. It took over a year for the one male cat to stop attacking one of my female cats that didn't want to play. The female cat now sleeps on top of high objects so the other cat can't ambush it. The only thing you can do is grab the male cat and yell at it every time it attacks the female cat. It will still do it...just not as much.

You think the cat is a lesbian?

Your description is not too far off from the way our older cat, a male has acted towards a new female kitten. The main difference is that she is a LOT faster than he is and gets away after he pins her down and bites her, usually on the stomach. He's not breaking the skin or anything, just making he squeal...It is all play and most of the time instigated by the kitten who jumps on his back from above and generally harasses him till he uses his superior bulk to get the upper hand. They sleep together, eat at the same area and constantly seek each other out when outside. If the little cat is hiding all the time from the bigger one then you may have a problem but just being up high is actually pretty typical cat behavior.

Tell "first cat" that he's actually the eighth cat to live in the house and try to bite new cats. Let him think about it.

Or if you don't beleive he's a sentient, higher life form that understands human logic, work in cat logic, make sure he knows that you're dominant over him (hold him down, 'bite' his belly), and also show yourself 'grooming' the new cat as 'your' offspring (rub it with your chin) and letting it climb all over you.

Our first and only cat bites every time he plays. Worse when he's really worked up.

bUMP, Had them out today and tried the spray bottle but the male would walk away, lick himself and continue 15 secs later.

Dilute the water spray bottle with vinegar.........it worked with mine.
