Cats attacking feet

Many people complain about their cat attacking their feet, this can be very annoying and some times painful below I will tell you why this is a common habit that cats have picked up.

Cats often attack peoples feet because of their hunting instinct. When cats see a fast moving object (or feet) they switch on their hunting instinct, it’s not really their fault and it’s useless to get mad at them for it. They are just trying to have some fun. While some people would recommend spraying your cat with a water bottle or some other punishment THIS IS WRONG you will not fix the problem with a punishment and only anger/annoy your cat. So what are the possible solutions to this? To be honest their aren’t very many. I would recommend that you get your cat spayed or neutered if it isn’t already, this can help calm it down and will prevent unwanted pregnancy’s. If your cat is attacking your feet while you sleep simply lock them out of your room at night. Lastly I would recommend you start wearing socks, if you don’t already. 😛

Good luck and hopefully this post will help you understand why your cat is doing what it is. If you are looking for some more in depth information I would recommend you click HERE.
