why does my cat always act like she's starving? She's only 7 weeks old and she goes absolutely nuts when there is people food around and always trying to get in my dish when I am eating. Why does she act like that? Thank you...

Are you sure you mean 7 weeks old? At this age most cats aren't even weaned properly and should still be feeding from their mother or being hand fed with cat milk.
if she is 7 months old then this is different and it could simply mean that she is a greedy cat. Some cats are food obsessed and these are the ones you have to be careful with otherwise they can put on lots of weight and suffer related illnesses.
At 7 months she should still be eating kitten food as this is balanced for optimal nutrition for a cat. the amounts shown on the cans or packets should be kept to and any begging attempts for other food should be ignored.
There are some medical conditions which can cause cats to be constantly hungry but these are more common in older cats but if the situation is really bad then it may be a good idea to have her checked by a vet.
