She's probably doing it because she's learned that she'll get attention if she does it. You could try putting Bitter Apple on your toes or wearing shoes or slippers.

But be careful around her if you're a male and sleep naked. I had a cat years ago who used to bite toes for attention. Then one night she crawled under the bed covers and saw something on my husband that kind of looked like a toe, I guess... LOL, she bit the tip of it so hard she drew blood. Course the hubby was furious and got even madder cause I couldn't stop laughing once he managed to tell me what happened. I still laugh every time I think about it.

LOL Mo used to do it when he was a kitten, but he has grown out of it now! I think it was when his adult teeth came through and because he was a bit more hyperactive back then. He's too lazy to do it now!

Skinderella likes to bite my toes at night to say "hey I'm sweating under the covers- how do I get out?:LOL: So I started wearing super fuzzy socks and taught her the way out. After Marlene's story, I'll have to warn the hubby:BigSmile:

Well, Jack ONLY bites toes when I have socks ON! He never bit my toes, grab/attacked my feet at all until about 3 or 4 weeks ago, when I started wearing socks! I never wear socks in the house till it starts getting cold. Now that I wear socks, he's crazy for my feet!
