I'm not certain exactly what's going on but clearly it's an attention-getting behavior. Pwrhaps you can get an appointment with veterinarian for medical diagnosis if there's something physically going on.
When I had my 2 cats (for 18 yrs....simultaneously), i varied their diet so it wasn't all meat. Sometimes all- meat diets make a cat pretty aggressive.
Also, I switched over to healthier foods ..such as Science Diet
Blue Buffalo cat foods. Yes, it's more expensive but it's better in the in the long range and they live longer...due to less filler and better ingredients that make the cat feel satisfied.
