Cat aggression before meal time
by Neilbert Jala
This is Samantha
My partner and I have a cat named Samantha. We adopted her two years ago and found her on the street near to my house in Butuan City, Philippines in my hometown.
Samantha is a very sweet and playful cat. She always sleeps with us by our feet and sometimes between us so that we can hug her.
Every time she asks for food and feels ignored she always bites my foot, sometimes hard, sometimes not, but it doesn't create a wound.
She is so impatient about waiting for her food, even though I tell her, "Please wait Samantha because I am preparing your food my baby," every time I am about to feed her.
Is there anything that we can do to prevent Samantha from biting our feet while we are preparing food for her, or any way to understand why she is doing that so we can adjust ourselves to Samantha's biting behavior?
Any thoughts will be appreciated! :)
