One of our new foster kittens is a beautiful Siamese Lynx point mix. Despite the fact that he is drop dead gorgeous with stunning blue eyes, the kitten has ADD apparently! He is staying in our large guest bathroom, and he keeps clawing at me to get my attention (yes, he uses claws, not just paws). he grabs my legs like a tree trunk and tries to bite me. He then bites my toys and won't let me even feed or brush off stray litter without him attacking my hands, feet, legs.
Its only been since last Sat that we had him, but I am getting more reluctant to go in there and play with him. I know its important to them being socialized, so I do my best but I keep getting shredded.
I am also worried this won't make him as adoptable? Will there be someone who wants a rambunctious, hands on kitten who needs a lot of attention?
He means well b/c he is sweet, rubs up on me, and just wants love. He purrs instantly and doesn't stop even after you stop petting. But he never learned NOT to use his claws. And I don't know how to stop him, other than saying "STOP" or "NO" or "SST" which has minimal effect.
His blood brother is the total opposite-- the sweetest lover and mellow lap kitten so I'm not sure if this was an early detachment from MOm thing.
I can't even play with him properly b/c he slides all over the floor, and he claws at me accidentally!
