Does your cat hate you? While many cat owners have thought about this idea, cats are very unlikely to hate their owners. Cat owners are more likely to misunderstand their cat friends. Here are a few insights, even behind the behavior of the cat, as explained by experts.
Biting behind love
Well, you happen to have a cat that bites. While some interpret this as negative behavior, it can also be what is known as "playing aggression".
"Cat play is usually very rough, and sometimes humans breed cats to learn to attack human hands and feet," said Sharon Crowell-Davis, a professor at the Veterinary Institute of the University of Georgia. "It's fun – you tickle them, and they bite you and scratch you." To avoid this type of behavior as much as possible, avoid playing with your cats. Try using toys instead.

Maybe your cat cuddles for a few moments and runs away after a few seconds. Does that mean that your cat hates you? No, no, it does not. It's just a misunderstanding how people like to show affection and how cats like to receive them.

"It's important here that cats turn to you first, so the cat can decide if you're dangerous or not and continue accordingly (hopefully without hissing).
