Default Love bites and love kicks

Imp came to see me this morning!!! He hasn't done that in a while.

I'm half awake when I sense him behind me. I roll over slowly and
start scritching the side of this face. he leans into my hand and
eventually flops onto his side. This continues for a moment, with him
rubbing and leaning his head into my fingers, when suddenly i feel two
paws wrap around my hand.

Imp pulls my hand in close and bites it. Not hard enough to break the
skin, but enough to pinch. He continues to nibble on my hand lightly
and throws in a few kicks with his back feet. Then he stops.

I start scritching him again, and he bites me again. I try to remove
my hand but imp thinks now I'm trying to wrestle with him so he hangs
on and throws in a few more bites and kicks. I free my hand and he
just looks at me. I start scritching him again, but soon he's got my
hand again and biting it. After a while he gets tired and runs away

Fortunately he doesn't scratch me hard anymore. When I first adopted
him he used to totally scratch up my hands.

I guess this is a thing he does when he gets overstimulated or
something. Like the chin scratches are sooooo good he has to bite the
hand that's scratching him. Wait a sec, that doesn't really make
sense.......... Aw well, that's a cat for you.

Anyone else have kitties that give love bites and kicks?

Yeah, Cali's a kicker and a biter. She'll kick you with her hind feet when
you rub her belly (no claws) and occaisonally nip your hand. This is
usually followed by a lick, "Oh, I didn't really mean to do that". Then
she'll do it all over again

Smokey's the grabby one. Any time you pet her she'll wrap her paws around
your hand and try to lick you to death. I suspect her mother had to hold her
down to wash her, so she is doing the same.

Yep. My normally sedate (sedantary, even) Amelia. If I pet her tummy
when she's feeling at all playful I can count on having her grab my hand
with her front paws, bite me (gently), and bunny-kick me.

Both LB and Sammy will sometimes when getting belly rubs and they want
to play.

From your description Imp sounded a little like Sammy when she's
nervous and just wants some hooman contact, but no scritches or
loving. When there's a storm, she usually heads to the bedroom and
crawl under the covers. If I go in and lay down on the bed to keep her
company, and she'll wrap her paws around my arm. She's not interested
in petting, though, and if I do more than briefly rub her head she
moves down to my ankles. I figure she feels safer with the contact,
but wants to be able to keep her attention on the storm.
