Ash has recently started to bite my wife a lot. If Ash gets on the ground when she goes to pick her up she'll bite. If Ash is on her cage she'll bite. Today she went to pick Ash up and she bit her, when she got her up and went to put her on her cage she bit her again. This is new, maybe it is age and hormones, she is approaching age 13, but it is becoming a real problem. Nothing has changed in terms of our house, my wife's appearance or anything like that.
What do you do with a pet you love who keeps hurting the one you love?
We must protect those that can not protect themselves.
It is difficult if she suddenly started biting. Does she normally favour one of you over the other? It sounds like she has got annoyed with your wife for some reason and is associating her with something. Has Ash been showing any sort of nesting activity recently - it could be hormonal.
Somewhere in another universe, dear brother, you got saved.
Have you tried enticing her with her favorite treats when you pick her up? Not sure what to tell you to do, but eventually I think it will pass. Sheeba is very predictable, she bites everybody. But if you are brave and not afraid, she will eventually stop biting. She bites me hard enough to draw blood about once a month, still.
