How do I stop my new kitten from biting and harassing my cat?

How do I stop my new kitten from biting and harassing my cat? My cat hisses and swipes at him but he keeps coming back and bothering him.

Also, how do I stop my kitten from biting in general? The other day he bit me so fricking hard it drew blood.

Btw what breed is this?

    Cats will deal with each other. Give the kitten a solid bop whenever it's too rough with you.

    I had a cat that would bite and whenever he did I'd instantly firmly grab his neck and pin him down hard and he got the message after a few times. The thing is if you take too long to discipline a cat they won't understand the context and think you're being an butthole for no reason. You have to react immediately.

    Domestic shorthair. Looks like he's got some tabby in him somewhere based on the arm stripes but thats just "a cat," not any specific breed or fur pattern.

    Cats play by fighting, because it helps practice for hunting.
    New cat wants to play.
    Old cat is old and doesnt want to play.
    Cat skin is structured differently than ours, shit that would shred us to ribbons doesnt even hurt them. Kitten roughhousing involves biting. Either get a second kitten to play with the first one or get soemthing like pic related and get that fighty energy out on somethingnthat can take it.

    Your cat will deal with the kitten. Eventually the swipes and hissing will work, or they'll get rougher until the kitten gets the message.

    As for not biting you, don't use your hands as toys, and whenever you are bitten make a loud(ish) "ouch" noise, immediately disengage, and act skittish/hurt by the kitten for a few minutes. If you immediately stop interacting whenever it bites, it'll stop biting you as play.

    If they're love nips while purring or defensive bites, this won't really work. Can't stop love nips as far as I've found, and defensive biting means you need to do more gentle socialization in general

      Cat owners are mentally unstable.

      >Love bites
      Antithetical and a mental illness.

          right wing christcuck redditors come to Wauf to say things like "humans are absolutely superior and any animal that disobeys or puts its mouth on a human must be killed".

      You're forgetting a really easy alternative.
      Sometimes you can overstimulate a cat when you're petting them and their little cat brains cant handle it and they go full bear trap mode. If you've ever had a cat purring one second and then acting like a rabid shitweasel the next this is probably what happens.
      Just observe the body language and give a break when you notice the tail twitching.

    How thin is your skin that a kitten bite can break through it?
    Very pretty cat though
