Cat owners will appreciate the perspective in this excerpt about biting in cats.
A cat may be a mild biter during play or may mean business when she chomps down, inflicting pain and drawing blood. In either case, biting behavior must be corrected.

Biting may have become a very effective means of communication for a cat. She may bite when she wants to take a spot on the couch or to be fed, let outside, given attention, left alone, and so forth. Avoid physical reprimands when trying to get a cat to stop biting. Hitting the cat will only confuse her, and if she bit as a defensive reaction, that’ll only heighten her feeling of being threatened.
