So I have had Kramer as you all know for many years now, I love the little brat but not some of his behavior and its getting to the point that I don't know what to do. Here's the thing, ever since we got him he has been sweet and loving but in the twitch of an ear can be the meanest thing on the earth. When I lived at my moms he wouldn't allow me upstairs if he wanted wet food. He would stop me by getting on the stairs then doing the mean meow, hiss and batt at me if I tried, its gottenn worse.
Kramer for no reason now will go off and attack me, I mean just latch on to my left foot, leg, arm and on a few rare occastions my head. WHen he does this he is out for blood almost every time at least one scratch if not all of them are bleeding. He also bites when he does this, only two of his bites that he has given me have ever got infected thank god.
there is no warning about when he will do this, sometimes he will get the mad meow going and I know to grab something and scare him away with it but, he will attack me when I am asleep in bed or like last night going to the bathoom. He was rubbing on me and loving on me then bam he attacked my left leg. I spanked him with a book I had in my hand and he ran off.
I have tried everythiing from not giving him his wet food for a day, to spanking him, to squirting him with water, to even locking him in his carrier, nothing seems to work. He is a great cat 95% of the time and he doesn't attack me all the time I can go months with out him attacking me then he will start it up for like a month or two then it goes away again. Do you guys have any idea of why he does this? I have taken away catnip, cause he gets mean with it, I haven't changed his food, or brand of litter on him, nor has the appartment changed at all. He is a rescue and I have a feeling he was abused at his first home and yes he is fixed. But any ideas would help me out allot.
