My father passed away. I'm disabled, so Lexi and I were living with him. Ever since he died, Lexi has become very aggressive with me. She draws blood 2-3 times a day. Today she bit my ankle and when I tried to get away, I ended up gouging my foot on air vent.
Obviously, this is out of hand and I don't know what to try. I've tried being extra gentle with her, speaking to her sternly, spraying her with water, putting her in the bathroom for a couple of minutes to cool down, crying out in pain (so she knows it hurts me), but nothing helps.
Anyone know any solutions, particularly "quick fixes"? As I said, I'm disabled. I moved in with my parents because I couldn't work and needed help with day-to-day stuff too. My mom died 4 years ago and dad died this year. Now I'm trying to manage settling an estate, day-to-day life, and my illness. Time and energy is a luxury I don't have.
