Sounds normal to me. Or should I say the joys of young life. She is still quite young and so is full of energy, also if you haven't had her spayed yet this could also be affecting her, as she is moving into adulthood and will be experiencing all those urges etc.

Make sure her home environement is stimulating and gives her plenty of opportunity to do all those cat things like climbing, playing, hunting etc (see my pages here

I wouldn't worry too much at this stage. As for her not letting you touch her it could be the way you approach her. the best way to bond with a cat is to let them come to you. I also have a web page about bonding here

best wishes Kate
