Why is my cat loving one moment, then will attack me the next?!

My cat will come into the room purring, and will jump on my bed and lay down with me. But maybe 3 min later, he will completely freak out and bite me .... get up and take off running. Then he always comes back. Is this normal cat behavior?!

A lot of cats are just like that and others just get into their playful moods at odd times. My cat runs around at night and attacks everything including walls and her own tail. Completely normal but if your cat always does this then maybe try leaving the room or getting away from your cat when he does this. It will give him the idea that he won't get attention when he attacks. :) hope this helped:)

i'm not 100% sure if it's normal, but i know many cats that do the same. i wouldn't get too worked up about it, just know that at least he's loving part of the time and that you are not alone :)

Your cat could either be playing with you, practicing for when he really needs to attack something or he just doesn't like you. It could also be a manifestation of so-called status-induced aggression. Consult a vet for more details.
