This is typical kitten behavior. One way to lessen your pain is to get another kitten the same age. They play together really well and don't bother you so much. She's trying to play with you and you aren't responding the wy she expects!

Redirect with a interactive toy like a feather wand or in our house...Da Bird is a favorite. Like said...this is pure kitten...do not rough house with her as this encourages the use of teeth and claws. She will eventually grow out of it.

Be gentle and say 'no' and maybe a hiss or two if she persists...remember she's just a baby. She will more than likely grow out of it. This is how kittens play with their siblings, and their siblings will hiss if they get too rough.

we're getting this with Iggy too, but just keep distracting him w/kitten toys...or wrapping paper...lol
And hands/fingers arent our biggest challenge. its feet. Iggy LOOooooovvveess feet. he has a serious foot fetish. lol
Id say just keep up w/the distractions, thats sure what we're trying! That, and waiting in out.
Good luck, and enjoy the new little furball!
