My active kitten

my kitten is one and half month old she is always biting and scratching she is scared of my hands and try to bite them when ever i try to play with her

Saima you are misunderstanding your kittens behavior. She is not sacred of your hands she is playing with them and treated them as if they were prey etc. this is normal behavior for kittens as they learn all about hunting etc.

Normally they learn how to hunt, play etc from their mother but if she is not around then they learn from us.

HOWEVER and this must be taken note of. You should not play with your hands with your kitten. you must use toys only, ie pulling string for her etc. the reason for this is, if she thinks and learns that biting and scratching people hands is ok, she will continue to do this throughout life when she wants to play and this can become a problem when they grow up. Causing nasty bites and scratches on peoples hands.

If she tries to bite your hand simply move your hand away and leave the game. This way she will learn not to do it.
