A friend found a very tiny kitten while camping five months ago and brought him home to keep. He has had excellent vet care and is growing nicely. He is now probably six and a half months old and is the wildest, craziest kitten I have ever seen.

I had cats growing up and just don't remember them ever being this nutty. He is in constant motion, attacks everything, bites your hands constantly then bites your feet if you put him down. Unless he is sleeping, he is pestering someone.

Is this normal? Could the cat have a developmental problem or is this just how kittens are and I have forgotten?

I would say it is normal. Cats (and kittens) can have such different personalities. My youngest "kitten" (he's a year old now) is one of the wildest I have known. I compare him to my girls and he is so different. He is into everything, jumps as high up as he can get to, wrecks stuff, steals (food, from the dog usually) and is basically a bully. My girl cats seems so angelic compared to him. Thankfully, he is starting to mellow out a bit.

You could always go to the shelter and get another carzy kitten for him to play with! I have found that 2 of the same species play together and use up some of that energy on each other.

Default busy cats

my mom's 2 cats are very busy cats....Buckley the siamese is into opening any drawer/cabinet/closet he can and Trouble is exactly what her name is......trouble. if there's something to knock on the floor, steal and hide, scatter she's likely the suspect. some cats just need to be doing something....

Some cats are crazier than others. BoyKitty is always into trouble, eats lint off the floor, knocks stuff off shelves, chases his own shadow ... Where GirlKitty is demure and dainty, and happy to sit in the window all day watching birds.

But kittens usually calm down, to a point.
