Ok here goes! I have a 7 month old female Calico kitten named Nollee! She was a feral rescue that I adopted! When I got her she was very timid but would consistently let me hold her... A couple days after I got her she would run whenever you walk past her as if she was in fear! This may be do to all the vet trips she had to go to and medication treatments she had on a daily basis, and not to mention she was feral (I would hide too after all that harrassment we had to put her through)! She is getting better but still runs on occassion? I am assuming this will improve over time (only had her a little over a month)! Lately she seems to come up to me (which she never does) whenever I take a potty break late at night... So I pick her up and bring her to bed! Its all love and cuddles until she starts rapidly eating my hair, licking my earlobes, forehead, and lips... attacking me feet (which is frustrating) and sometimes she latches on to my arm like its a nipple (lol think she was weened a little early)! Anyways she is just overall hyper and crazy, always doing flips and acting a fool! Is she just a nut or do you think she may becoming comfortable with her new living spot? Also how do I get her to chill on attacking the feet! Closing the bedroom door isnt an option since we are in limited space as is and my 5 year old cat will throw a fit, scratch the door constantly, and meow till the sun comes up... She does it too! i usually tell her no and get her off of my bed! She thinks its a game cuz she jumps right back up and is at it again! I dont mind but I do have to sleep sometimes... I understand she is a kitten and this is what they do... Are there any tricks to settle it down a notch?
