He is 1 year and 1 month old and is still quite a rambunctious little fellow. Hunting us while we sleep, chasing around a piece of packing strap that we have had for about 6 months now, and just being awesome.
However, he has had a habit for a while that we can't seem to shake, and that is the random, indiscriminate attack on ankles.
Generally it will occur in the bathroom while we are getting ready, but sometimes he just seems to be in the mood to walk over your foot, take exception to your foot being underneath him, wrapping himself around said foot and sinking claws and teeth in. It is obvious that it is just play as he has never drawn blood or broken skin, but the GF and I are at a loss as to how to break this habit.
We tried the high pitch yelp, the physically removing him from our feet, the walking away, but it doesnt seem to break it. Furthermore, water does absolutely nothing. As you can see he is incredibly furry (That TAIL!) so I don't think he feels most water bottle shots. Most of the time he runs away because it is water, decides to wash himself of this water, and then come back for more.
Once we break this habit, we can break his annoying habit of knocking over any bucket he sees as they collect rainwater that is leaking in through out apartment ceiling!
