He jumps, bites and suddenly scratches your hand. Your cat can become a sweet loving pet to a hunting animal in one second.  Why do cats do this? There are several reasons. First your cat could have been taken away from it’s mother too early and has never learned that it should withdraw it’s claws when playing. A mother usually teaches it’s kittens with a quick reprimand when he does this with his brothers and sisters.

Hands can also be associated with prey. Make sure you keep your hands out of the way and use a cat stick toy when playing. Cats love to chase stick toys and love cat toys which move my themselves.  Be patient, cats can sometimes  be a bit unpredictable.
