When you’re around a cat, your cat may bite you for no apparent reason. Of course, that’s from a human perspective. From a cat’s perspective, biting is fun and part of its hunting instinct.

So the best way to keep your cat from biting you is to provide it with plenty of toys that it can bite. Usually your cat will see your hand as a fun toy but give it something else to gnaw on, like somebody else’s hand. Just keep in mind that cats are playful creatures even when they’re destroying things.
