51 years ago I went through the rabies shots series after being bitten by a rabid animal... it was not fun...
I would rather be forced to spend a day with a dux then do that again..
Lots of spay/neuters for cats are super cheap. We don't know where you are, it's not listed, but this place has several locations across the US and is $33.
I wasn't laughing at the possibility. I thought you were joking. My cats have their shots and are healthy.
My mom went through rabies shots after getting attacked by a raccoon. It is not a laughing matter. But I assumed there was some humor here due to the animal in question being a cat.
After further thought, I believe the cat meant no harm. I once had a cat that bit everyone's chin when she was being overly affectionate. (She never drew blood, just touched her teeth to the skin.) Maybe it's like that.
I had a tom that had a thing for my legs. If I was wearing normal long pants he didn't react to them, if I was wearing leggings or shorts however, he would "attack" the backs of my calves wrapping his front legs around them and nipping them like yours did to your neck.
I also have a neutered male that attacks my head if he gets a chance, he starts by licking my hair, then chewing on my hair, then grabbing my head (with claws!) and cramming my head in his mouth so he can bite my scalp.... I try to make him stop when he is at the licking stage but if I don't stop him soon enough I have needed rescue from my husband from the cat attached to my head...
Yeah, it's a boy cat thing...
Thank you for the story and reassurance. It was rather fun to read.
My grandkids' neutered tom cat would attack the back of my head just about every time I was at their house. He would slowly make his way up to the back of the couch, nuzzle my neck then attack. Never breaking the skin, just hold on with his paws and bite. I always thought it might be my shampoo or cologne, since I was the only person he did that to.
Maybe he's just playful and loves you. Thank you for sharing!
We had a neutered male that was not very sociable, but once in a while he would jump up on somebody's lap to be petted. It usually ended with him suddenly grabbing the person by the arm and biting them without warning, then jumping off. Definitely a case of overstimulation, but we sure wished he would just decide he'd had enough and bail off like a sensible cat.
