Is this normal bahavior?
My 1 yr old male cat has been doing this thing where he'll walk by with a high arched back and rub up against my legs while I'm sitting at the computer, ...I'd say that part is completely normal behavior, however, then just as he barely gets past my feet, he suddenly turns around and bites my toes, ...sometimes this can be very painfull!! I'm not exactly sure as to why he does this, or if there is possibly something he is trying to tell me by doing this. I really dunno.
He was just neutered recently, and ever since that time he has been really unpredictable, ...he goes from mild to wild instantly, bites about anyone who tries to touch him. Maybe one time per day he will jump up on your lap and demanding affection, he'll snuggle up to ya, and let you pet him for about 3 minutes, ..then without warning he'll either turn his head and bite, or roll over on his side and kick and scratch at your hand if it's anywhere close to him. Other cats that I've had before in the past never have acted like this. He's an odd one, ..still love him very much though.
Please advise any likely reasons as to why he might be biting at my toes like this.
Thanks a million!!
