    A Plea For Help

    It sounds like their was an incident at that time (maybe because the 7 year old did not recognize him) and that leads him to see your 7 year old cat as a menace hence the attacks. Separating them seems the only way to fix it right now (and it is doable!!). Do you live in a 1 or 2 bedroom appartment?

    Does your basement have a window she can look out from? If no I would personally not leave her there, she could get bored and it can be a bit claustrophobic for them if they don't have windows. Personally but this is personal I would kitten proof my home and let her roam free: I would feel that...

    Kitten Play-attacking My Arm

    Hi, She might simply be bored and get you to go out of bed. What do you usually do? As soon as she does it I would put her out the room and close the door. The idea is to let her know that biting you means no sleeping with you. I would also procure her with cat toys that she can wrestle and...

    What Would You Do?

    The key is patience and doing it slowly. Just let the harness close to her toys for a few days, then putting it on while giving her treats ect.. You stop when his is unconfortable and you rewared her patience. That way he will associate the harness with good things. However ultimately it is...
