Author Topic:   A kitten that NEVER calms down.

I have an 8 mounth old kitten that I just got a few weeks ago. It will never calm down. I want it to be trusting enuff to be held upside down without strangle (not that I would do so.)but you get what I mean. A cat that will lay in your arms when you want a friend to be around. But this cat never wants to stand still unless its left alown it will go to sleep out of boardness. I try to hold him, but he meows ever 3 seconds, I'm not shoure if I am herting him or if he is just a cry baby, so I put him down & he go's about his bussiness. When I take him to bed, he will jump at my head, go under my blankets & nag my legs. I have a bed that he sleeps in when he is tired & is in my room, but for this cat, sleep is very minimem. Which makes be a little angry, because I really want a loving cat that will be there & lay with me when I am not in the mod to play & one that will play when I am ready to play. I had a cat exactly like that, that had trusted me like no other cat I've had before, & seemed to be able to sence what mod I was in.His name is Max, but he had died at the age of 1 1/2 year from kidney backup. This cat just wants to play.
I try doing everything or everything I can atleast remeber, with this cat that I did with Max. But he just eather Meows every 3 seconds or trys to jump out of my arms & play.
Any advice on what I can do for MnM? My boy kitten? At the age of 8 months.

Is your cat neutered? Part of his hyperactivity maybe hormones... but hvaing had kittens myself, an 8 month old kitten is just that...a kitten. He is still a baby and wants to play! You also said you got him a few weeks ago. Well trust and love come in time. My cat, Ash, was a nervous wreck when I brought her home with me at 6 months and it took her over a month to even begin to trust me and even then she didn't sleep in my bed for ages after that. You can earn their trust and love by patience, getting to know them, playing with them, feeding them, claening their litter box, spoiling them, etc... and letting them get to know you on their own terms. Some cats are born overly loveable and others aren't. Cats are in many ways like people.....give him plenty of time and you will see the relationship between the two of you will grow, push the relationship and you might not get anywhere. Just be patient. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply, I'll try that. Plus, I think I remember Max being like this before we got him fixed, then when he was, he seemed lay back from that point on. But when you had shaken a toy or something like that he would get up & want to play! :-)
