How to train a cat not to bite

How to train a cat not to bite

1. Pretend to pass out. If the cat is too aggressive when playing and uses its teeth or nails, respond immediately away from the play, ignore it, and sit or standstill. The cat wants to play, and when to stop interacting, it will soon learn that it doesn't want that.
Never hit a cat and also not spray it with water if it bites. Over time, these things can cause cats to fear yourself.
Try changing your playing style if the cat becomes too aggressive. Cats may actually have gone into hunting mode. Use toys with long ropes or handles so your cat can practice hunting without causing you injury or misbehaving.

2. Respect your cat's limits. Maybe the cat bites because you handle him roughly or chase him until he's in a defensive position, the cat also needs a private space, you have to give it. 

3. Prepare a hunting location for your cat. Cats may not enough place for their hunting instincts. So, giving the cat a toy like a ball or a stuffed rat that will make the cat feel hunting and catching prey. Better yet, use a toy with a rope or stick, such as a "fishing rod", so you and the cat can play together.

Try using catnip. Many stuffed toy cats have velcro bags as a place to put catnip, or you can spray a little catnip on the floor and let your cat roll nearby. About half of the cat population will not like catnip, but cats who like it will enjoy short safe playtime, with a serious rest period afterward.

Train Cats to Stop  scratch Furniture

1. Prepare the claw pole for your cat. If the cat keeps scratch you or furniture, chances are he did it because he needs to sharpen his nails. The cat claws household objects to leave traces of its scent on it (through the glands on the soles of its feet), and gets rid of the naturally growing layers of skin and covers its paws. Providing its own channeling place, such as a claw pole, will satisfy its clawing desires so that this behavioral problem will be slightly reduced. If you catch a cat clawing furniture, carpets, or other places it shouldn't claw, interrupt itself with a sharp voice. Try clapping or shaking a jar full of coins to surprise the cat and stop scratch. Immediately point your cat at the paw pole. By interrupting the furniture and moving it to a claw able object such as a claw pole, you're actually telling yourself that some objects can be clawed, but others shouldn't.

2. Use citrus or menthol. Cats tend not to like the scent of citrus and menthol. Rubbing a little oil on your cat's often clawed furniture could prevent it from doing so again at a later date. Soak some cotton balls in menthol-based citrus oil or muscle balm. Try touching cotton balls on the legs and armrests of furniture usually clawed by cats. Know that this will cause your furniture to smell slightly and may be stained. The possibility of citrus oil to leave stains is smaller. If you're worried about oil that might seep into your furniture, you might be able to try touching cotton balls to the feet of sofas and tables that your cat usually claws.

3. Use the splashing method. If the cat continues to claw hands or feet or destroy furniture throughout the house, it may be time for you to use the shrinking way. When the cat claws, sprinkle a little water on him. The cat does not like water, and he will soon learn to connect the sensation of the uncomfortable feeling of the cat will begin to connect the uncomfortable feeling of being sprayed water with yourself. 
4. Do Not cut your cat's nails. No matter how severe the problem of clawing it, cutting the cat's nails will only lead to worse problems. This process is very painful for cats and can cause long-term problems, such as tissue necrosis, permanent pain, a tendency to avoid feces boxes, and increased aggression towards humans.
