    I am new to the forum and look forward to the experience of you all. We adopted a new 2 year old boy from the Humane Society a month ago. He was neutered the same day we brought him home. He is a beautiful silver and black shorthair bengal mix. We live in a very quiet home (just the two of us) and Buddy is the only cat in our home. We have already had him to the vet for a wellness checkup. He is on a stable diet and is played with 20-30 minutes twice a day.

    So here is the issue; Buddy bites. He will without provocation or being over stimulated, bite us on our feet and/or hands! We are always taken by surprise by this and have so far reacted by loudly yelping "ow" or his name. This results in what can only be explained by him having a look of surprise and either him trying to bite again or running off. We are at a loss to figure out why he is doing this and how to correct the behavior. We would appreciate any help we can get. Thank you!
