She was very good.

But today she is a biter and pouncing on me constantly. 

It's been a while since I have had a pet in my home I would "Cat Sit" for my daughters feline and have for the 4 years she has had him. I would always miss him when  he would go back home. My daughter always encouraged me to get  a playmate of my own. 

Some of you may have read the Tuna saga where she was there and then gone. She seemed to get accustomed easily to the transfer from an outside to inside cat after her visit to the Vet to get checked out, vaccinated and spayed.  She even traveled very well in the truck from Oklahoma to North Dakota with a side trip to South  East Iowa.

Here's s picture of her being good watching the dog outside. 

It's been a progressive thing. She would hide under my bed and pounce on my foot when I would walk by. Never with claws out and I thought it was cute. Recently she has chosen to DEMAND attention by attacking me with claws out and biting until I start playing with her. Today it has been constant since I got out of bed and am trying to get ready for work. I did purchase a new toy yesterday. Its a round tray with a ping pong ball in a track on the outside and a cardboard scratching area on the inside. There was a bag of "Catnip" included that you are to sprinkle into the cardboard, but apparently it came fully loaded. She was enamored with it for almost 30 minutes and then started playing with the ball attached for another hour. Quite funny to watch. 

So any other cat owners encountered this and is there a fix? I was thinking it was too good to be true, how she was such a good cat. When I lay down to sleep she climbs in bed and remains there until just before the alarm goes off or her water fountain turns on ( I need to synchronize that to the alarm.) At least as far as I know. She doesn't make a peep all night and if I wake up she is right there. 

It took me  a bit to write this this morning, but now she seems to have been played/attacked out. I did put food out and clean the litter box already thinking maybe she was trying to communicate with me. The only thing it seems is she wants attention.

I'd come at you with claws and teeth also, if you had neutered me.  Just kidding.  You're describing the reason I don't have a pet.  Some of them just need a whole lot more attention than I'm willing to give.  You just don't know what kind of personality you're going to get until it's too late.

Anyway to have another cat over for a playdate?  Sometimes 2 cats is better as they amuse each other.  But one who has ruled the roost may not car for an addition.

Not currently. I may still need to do an occasional assist with my daughters feline, but that's usually only at the middle of winter. He has been to my home on wheels a few times and we got along very well every time. The two haven't yet met, but the he has had a roommate for almost a year who is moving away next month and he will get two new roommates, so my care may not be necessary. I thought about an introduction, but it would have only been for a few hours so I nixed that. May check my current area about the need for a "Foster" and see if that's possible. 

Thanks for the replies, comments and suggestions.

The reality is that many of us get neutered once the family size limit has been reached.    😸🐶

Thankfully it's getting better now. It took a couple loud noises to get the message across, but now it's just a firm no and the frequency is decreasing. Of course she is teaching me that she want's some attention as much as I'm teaching her not to bite.
