    Just to clarify, I never said I wouldn't get my boys neutron. I am well aware of the problem with cats overpopulating. I have found, cared for, and found homes for well over 30 cats over the years, some of which required medical attention and several that I paid to have spayed/neutered.

    In my area, there have not been any females since the last ones I owned, which were spayed. I know the possibilities. My cats are inside most of the time. I only meant to inquire about the odd behavior.

    Something else dawned on me. It's also possible he was reacting to a scent in your hair, shampoo, conditioner, hair spray etc. Where I used to work we had a shop cat that would go nuts on one of the employees hair, chewing and pulling on it when ever she held her. Only her. We finally figured out it was her hair spray. That cat would chew on plastic bags, too.

    What a quirky cat! Thanks for sharing!
    I don't really use anything like that.

    Ha, my indoor kitty, Daisy does that too! But instead of plastic bags, she likes foam, and any kind of foam! She’ll chew on it! Also, Instead of hair spray, it’s my shampoo...

    Perhaps he was having a nightmare. Keep an eye on your wound, it could easily become infected. Cats mouths are incredibly full of bacteria-yes, I know we all have bacteria in our mouths, but cats have extra nasty mouths.

    I agree with the possibility of the cat being overstimulated but the owner should know their pet unless it was a new pet.

    Wound? No, there was no skin broken. Just his mouth and teeth touched but he didn't actually bite down. It was odd.
    If he had bitten me, I'd take the proper precautions.

    I do know my cat. I give him attention several times a day. (He jumps into my arms when he wants held.) He's never behaved like that before I've had him for years...
