  • Try doing that with a whole litter. I foster so i deal with this quite a it but i enjoy it. He is young at 8 months he is still a baby and so he is going to play and be active. Some kittens are more active then others but he will settle down. I would recommend that you get several differant toys some you can play with him and butn energy and others that are interactive. Ou can also get a squirt bottle to teach him to stop unwanted behaviors or get a soda can and put coins in it. Shake it at him when he gets to wound up and the noise will distract him and probably help calm him down a notch.

  • Putting the cat in another room is a good solution. We have a kitty tower the cats love. I also foster kittens and always get them in pairs so they can play with each other. Your kitten my need a kitten to play with.

  • There are medications for cats. He may have anxiety from this little guy that sounds weird and smells funny. How about kitty valium lol

  • In my experience, cats act pretty crazy until they are about 3 years old. I'm down to just one cat now and I think to myself that I would like to get another one, but I may have to adopt an older cat because I'm not sure I want to take on the craziness of a kitten/toddler cat again.
