Our kitten is 6 months old and has been with us for 6 weeks. She came to us with a URI and roundworms and seems to be much better now if not cured. My question relates to her behavior and how it changes tracks from moment to moment. She will climb onto my lap, however, she will only do this in "her room" and when I am sitting on the floor with my legs closed. I also must be wearing my pajama pants. If I have on jeans...no way! I will be petting her and talking to her while she is on my lap and then she will try and bite me. If she has had enough petting...why not just get up? At other times, we will be playing and she will just walk away. She is starting to develop some behaviors I dislike, such as climbing on the counters, clawing the rugs, and BITING my boyfriend, however, I am not willing to be stern with her because I am afraid to break the SLIGHT bond we are beginning to have. I spend hours a day with her and just wish I knew how to make her more affectionate with us. We really love her. I guess my question is do I just continue to cater to her moods or ignore her or what? Thanks 4 ne help you can give us!
