Evil Bangle Kitty

I was wondering if anyone knows about Bangle kittys? We have this 7 month old male (neutered) kitty that is evil as all get. He loves attention on ((HIS)) time. Usually 10 minutes threw out a whole day. And he has to come to you for it. Don't dare go to him.
If were sitting or laying on the sofa he'll just pounce on you and just start attacking your arms or legs. Or if your laying on the floor he'll attack your whatever parts he can. And no matter how much you try to fling him off he just keeps attacking you. Then he'll arch his back and start bouncing at you to attack you again. We yell at him and he doesn't listen to a darn thing we say. My daughters tried the water bottle thing with him and he would run off at first, now he comes at you as soon as he see's it in your hands. We need to wear those guard dog outfits you see peole wearing when training a dog to attack. Your constantly looking around every corner so you don't run into him. When we walk down the stairs he comes out of no where and starts grabbing at your feet or jumping up to bit your hands. Someone once told me this was a Bangle cat trait. I would NEVER believe a cat could be so dog gone aggresive. Geeesh
Who needs a gaurd dog when you have this guy around. But I was wondering if anyone else has this problem with this type of cat or knows if this is normal for him?
He hasn't bit to draw blood (yet). We de-clawed his fronts but he still has his back claws. Now I wish I would have had those puppys cut off now. They can really use those as a weapon. He does do a lot of scratchs on our arms with those hind claws.
Also, a couple of times I was just standing in the kitchen and out of no where he came running and pounced up onto my chest. I did catch him, then he just sat there for about 5 seconds then flung off again. Is he just showing his kitten side yet?

I dunno, maybe there's no hope for this guy but to be (wild). But any help will be good help.

Oh, one more thing. When we took him to the vet the vet was more then happy for him to be with us then him. He said that when (i call him,"Schiddy Kitty") schiddy kitty doesn't want something done to him he DOES let you no. I guess he tore the **** out of his paw protector after he was declawed. And didn't want the shot the vet had to give him before his neutering was done. I could just imagine what schiddy kitty was TRYING to do to the poor Dr. vet man.

We also can't leave him home alone unless we lock him in his kitty crate. I never knew what kind of a DISASTER a cat could do when left alone. It actually will look like a small tornado touched down in the main level of the house. He just destroys everything. And when we have people sleep over he has to be locked in our room or he pounces on the visitors all night long. Its bad news with this ol boy. And when I tell people about him schiddy rubs on there legs and sits there and stars at them like hes the perfect angel. OMG, not even close to an angel.
I always said I would never own a cat. Then I finally brake down and allow this little cute kitten into our home and now I think I've been cursed.  
As I write this I can hear him getting into stuff in the kitchen. And I only think, WHAT HAVE I DONE to myself. I'm almost scared to go see what he is getting into. If you ONLY NEW.

Please give me some insight on this kind of cat and or what to do to chill him out if I will be at all able to.

Do you mean Bengal?

Bengals are a fairly new bread that was started about 30 years ago by breeding American Domestic Shorthairs with Asian wild leopard cats.  They are not considered to be fully domesticated until the F7 to F9 generation (7-9 breedings of Bengal to Bengal since the original breeding to the ALC).  I have an 11 year old Bengal that we got when she was about 1 1/2.  They can be a bit challenging.  You may also have a Bengal that is less than F9.  Where did you get this kitten?  Do you have papers on his lineage?  Unfortunately, some less than reputable breeders will sell Bengals that are less than F9, or even less that F7 for a discounted price.  A purebred F9+ Bengal kitten is quite expensive....normally about $500 or more, so if you paid less than that for yours, you may have a kitten that is still semi-feral.

I also have a Bangle. He just turned 1 yr old this past month. I know what you are saying with the attacking. Luckly we have another cat that he attacks, not us. Ours is very cuddly though. But that didn't come till he started getting older. I would try and get his attention placed else where. Bangle cats are very very active. They need multiple hours of play time a day. Also, when it comes to playing with them, you need to mix it up too. Sometimes their attention spand can be short. As for the water bottle, I don't think it works. My bangle just sits there like it's no big deal. I can spray him with the whole bottle and he don't care. I have yet to find a way to punish him that actually works. Also, not to make you rethink anymore then you already are, but fyi my bangle likes to jump on everything (counters, fish tanks, ect.), eat plastic and tooth brushes, scratch mirrors, windows, and wood. My bedroom door is completely scratched to heck. On the fun side, Bangles are known as the "dog" in the cat family. They do have more behavior traits like a dog then most cats. In the past 2 months, ours started playing fetch on his own. Try giving yours a drinking straw. Also, one of the best investments we ever made was buying a climbing/ scratching post that goes all the way up to the ceiling. ( only $30 at wal-mart) I hope some of this helps!!!
