    Love Nips

    My Bentley will come up and give me the best loving, when hes in the middle of doing this he grabs my skin between his teeth and will shake it, then release. Boy does it hurt, but I know hes not being mean when doing this. Does anyone elses cats do something like this?

    Oh my!

    Both Zam and Kia, and now even Little Boy will nip while giving kisses. They've never broken the skin though... thankfully.

    Mr. Jones has done the 'love bite' thing since we got him almost 2 years ago.
    I have greatly reduced it's frequency by giving him the 'opportunity' to bite my knuckle and then if he goes for it, I push my knuckle into his mouth. He does not this at all. So, I know it's negative reinforcement but it works and it doesn't hurt him, he thinks: gee, this it unpleasant.

    I would never raise my hand to my cats.

    Maybe there's just so much skin to shake I never discipline him when he does this cause I know it's affection. One time I had gotten up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Bentley followed me in there, started loving, purring and rubbing on my legs, then he grabbed a piece of my behind and nipped and shook! Yowsa did it surprise me! I about flew off the toilet!

    Ah, the toilet nip!!! My cats from decades ago did that. As for Speckles, if I pet her then walk away, she will run after me and try to nip my heel. Ouch.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    *LMAO*

    Yes Katiebug does this...she stands on the sink and when I try to step into the shower she will love bite my love handles...*L* I have to walk in with my hand on her face to get in the shower safely. And she love bites my hands constantly....at least it always starts loving little nips....with lots of licking in between..then she gets more excited and starts biting harder..I then squeal in pain and she gets annoyed..growls and bites even harder...*chuckle* If I get get ahold of her I hold her on my chest at this point and have a discussion afterwards. Then I ask for a nose lick to seal the deal..she doesnt' get to leave till I get the nose lick. So far she only bit my nose once....*L* Most of the time she gives it a big ole slurp.

    Denyce-that's too funny. Speaking of biting noses....one night my husband was in a deep sleep and our Calvin (now deceased) jumped on the bed and out of the blue just chomped right down on his nose! I'm laughing as I'm writing this.

    Great stories everybody!

    I carry Tubby like a baby (over my shoulder) and when I have my hair pulled back he'll sniff at it, then bite it and rip it out of the barrett. Once it's out of the barrett he'll have nothing to do with it so I don't know what his deal is, but he does it everytime I hold him like that and my hair is pulled back.

    Yep, Blueberry will come up to me and give me a nip anywhere, but he doesn't shake. He also bites on to me for a long time, ad it does hurt.

    Bob likes to chomp on my big toe. And he always lets out a huge purr while he's chomping.
