My friend has a cat who is about a year old now and it is quite aggressive. It scratches and bites a lot as a form of play. You can be sitting on the sofa happily watching tv when next thing it's pounced on you and its biting and scratching you! My friend thought that with a bit of training and it being neutered the cat would be come less aggressive but its behaviour hasnt changed, in fact its getting worse because the cat is getting stronger as he grows

Does anybody know of any effective solutions to this? I know my mate has had a look at various websites and tried various steps but they've had little impact really. I dont think shes experienced enough in training animals. I think its time for professional help myself, I know there are behavioural classes for puppys but are there any for cats?

Cats are hunters........some are naturally scratchers and you can't train it out of them. They aren't like dogs in that way which is why they are so independent.

This is why I'd never own a cat. *shivers at the thought*

Ditto. I guess it's why most cat owners are happy to leave their cats roaming the streets. Means they can claw people's kids and not their own arms for a change.

Cats aren't like dogs, you cant train them and they are instinctively aggressive as they are born hunters.
The only way to stop it is to pretend to "attack" the cat back - don't hurt the animal, but scare it to make it realise that you are the dominant animal and it cant attack you. Most cats, wild and domestic practice attacking their siblings and parents and the parent has to remind the young who is the boss.

You can train a cat - not to the extent of training a dog, but you can train them to both do things and not do things.

The simplest way to stop a particular behaviour is a loud handclap (and perhaps a shout) when you want them to stop doing something. Cats don't like loud noises.

Try spraying the cat each time its aggressive or scratches with water from one of the plant sprayer/mister bottles.
Ive used this method to train both of my cats to not do things I don't want them to do.

I doesn't hurt them but most cats hate water
