Why is my tabby cat so affectionate?

While tabby cats are known to be affectionate, they are not necessarily more affectionate than other types of house cats. This is because tabby is a coat pattern and not a cat breed. ... The coat pattern really has nothing to do with it though. A cat with a solid coat can be just as affectionate as one with stripes.

Do cats grow out of play aggression?

It's very common for kittens and young cats to engage in rough, active play because feline play can consist of mock aggression. Many cats retain this kitten-like behavior well into adulthood. ... However, people often misinterpret this kind of behavior as aggression when it's directed toward them.

How do I stop my cat from attacking my feet?

To calm an aggressive cat, avoid roughhousing and redirect their attention.

How do I stop my cat from attacking my feet at night?
