Hello, I'm sort of new to the forums but I just don't know what to do! We got Izzie at about 7 wks old and at first she was very shy and very withdrawn and refused to be away from myself and my boyfriend. She finally began to show interest in playing and because she is an only kitten we figured that a little roughhousing wouldn't hurt. I raised many litters of kittens as a child and saw how they played with one another.
The problem is now that she's about 4 months old and now has full-blown kitten energy. BUT almost all of this energy is violent in nature! She's begun hiding behind and under things and attacking people's legs and feet as they walk by. We can't pick her up anymore because she starts clawing and biting. We stopped playing rough with her ages ago...I'm not sure what to do. She really is a loving kitten that loves affection but it's hard to tell when I can pet her and when I'm going to get my hand chewed off.
Help! Have we ruined our cat?!
