Hello- I have a 9 mos old neutered male Begnal. I have had him since February. He has been a great member of my little family until now. A little background, he broke his elbow back in May and was in a cast for like 5 weeks, he is all better now. I am not sure if the trauma of his injury has change his personality or what? He can become very aggressive and lunges at me and my husband. He bites, and I know he is not playing (I can tell the difference) he acts stressed and loses his hair, and puts his ears back, I push him away and he just lunges back at me. I toss him off the couch and he jumps right back up to bite and scratch me. I have tried "scuffing" him to subdue him, but that seems to enrage him more. I haven't been able to figure out a consistent trigger for the attacks either. If he is somewhere he isn't supposed to be I will pick him up and move him. I will go walking down the hall and before I know it he has snuck up behind me and latches on to my leg biting me. I scream and he runs away. The more serious attacks are the ones I described above, the only way I know how the neutralize the situation is to put him in the bathroom for like 10 minutes and wait for him to calm down. With all that being said- my question to all of you is if you have experienced something similar? Are there things I can do during an attack to calm him down? do I need to speak to my vet or a behavior specialist? I understood Bengal cats not to be aggressive, but is this just part of the breed I wasn't aware of? HELP! Thanks, Stellalyra.
