How do kittens play with humans?
If you’ve ever seen a litter of kittens zooming around in play, you know they bite and wrestle, jump on each other’s backs, and throw each other on the ground. They play rough. Flinging humans around is not an option, but young cats may nibble or bite our fingers, feet, or other body parts.

So why do cats do this? It’s a controversial topic in the feline behavior world, but many believe it’s simply due to overstimulation. Repetitive petting can cause your cat to become overly excited, and trigger an arousal-based bite. Commonly, I see static electricity as a reason for cats to bite during petting.

Should I let my kitten bite me?

Do kittens grow out of biting?
If you allow them to bite and scratch when they are young, it will be hard to stop them doing it when they are older – although most kittens naturally grow out of the habit between 1 and 2 years old.
