Typical cat. Bites the hand that feeds it.

And gets away with it.

I'm not an expert, but I've noticed that my daughter's cat, "Shorty" who seems fond of me will take a nip at my wrist as a show of affection. Champas doesn't know it hurts, I think.

Cat biting can be a sign of affection. A cat’s skin is quite thick (says someone who once had to hydrate a cat through the skin every day).

I think you're right.......I don't know how to explain my cat but she is definitely not one who likes to be picked up. When I attempt to rub her belly her claws come out and she wraps her paws around my hand and arm but when I say "Ouch", she lets up and allows me to remove myself before I'm lacerated........LOL!

Agreed. My youngest, pepper is the most affectionate car you’d want to meet. But one way she shows affection to me kinda hurts. She nibbles on my fingers. I stop her when it begins to hurt. It’s never become an issue because she only does it to me.
