Hello! I'm in pretty desperate need of some help. I adopted a kitten (his name is Charcoal) tomorrow will be a week ago because I have anxiety and wanted an emotional support animal (not official, but you know, a companion I could love). Everything went well, we took him to the vet, he's got a neuter scheduled in three weeks, and despite being rambunctious sometimes and spilling his water bowl, he's a great boy! When I first got him, he slept with me because he was anxious, lonely, not sure but it made him stop crying. So the following days after, I brought him with me again. He's gotten to the point that he just gets out of bed and goes to play with his toys - no big deal. However, in the moments he stays in the bed with me, he tries to bite and claw my eyes, and as I said earlier I got him for anxiety. Typing all of this out alone has me anxious enough to be nauseous - I have bad vision as it is and I really don't want to lose an eyeball. When he does this he typically pulls back after a minute (to prepare for another attack) and in that time I try to redirect him/turn him around the other way. Even when I'm sitting he also tries to do this, but typically my glasses deflect his paws and he's not big enough to reach with his mouth. I really don't know what to do. I'm going to stop bringing him to bed with me but this is a deal breaker. When he's got his teeth or claws in my eyelids I'm too terrified to move or make a noise in fear that the damage will get worse. I've scoured the internet for solutions but so far all I see is to keep him out of my room but that's not physically an option for me. I'm terrified of my kitten and I don't know what to do - my vision is too important to me to risk all of this. Please, someone help. I can't get my eyes back if they get hurt. My kitten is male and roughly 6-8 weeks old in perfect health except for being treated for ear mites in one ear. He's had his shots. When I was younger (around 10 or younger) every cat I had, my mother declawed. Yes it was convenient for avoiding scratches but now that I'm older and this is my cat, that is entirely off the table for me. If I can't break him of this habit I will just have to get rid of him and become a dog person - my mental stability isn't equipped to handle this. Please, someone offer me some kind of solution - I love my baby boy, but I don't know what to do!
