getting a kitten to calm down?
    #4647924 - 09/11/05 10:52 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I just got a 5-6 week old kitten, and I have to keep him in my room, as my 6 month old kitten tries to hurt him (he's getting neutered on thursday, so I think he'll calm down). Anyway, the kitten never sleeps, it just runs around my room (which is big enough for a cat), and when I try to sleep he climbs all over my head, and if I put him on the floor, he just climbs back up, and the cycle continues. Any suggestions? I can't seem to wear him out with playing :frown:

lol, I used to love when my cats did that as kittens.

Well, the only thing I could do is just bare it. Eventually, I passed out and the cat made a playground out of my hair.

the kitten you posted a picture of recently?? get used to a kitten... it's like a child, it won't sleep unless you tire it out enough. I had that problem a couple years back.... a small teddy bear, stuffed with catnip, did the job... now the cat eats all my ethnos that I try to grow

That is the kitten. I thought catnip made kittens crazy, and not relaxed?

It will make them crazy, but they will bother the catnip, not you.

It does, briefly, then they crash (usually).

I think you'll find that kittens don't calm down, ever.  When I got my cat at 5 weeks old last May, his favorite game was "run across the bed and attack the life out of my hands", followed by "kitten toss" to the couch, repeat ad nausea.  Cats tend to mellow with age- he should be much more chill in about a year.  :smirk:

Always get kittens in pairs. That way they play with each other instead of you bothering you constantly. Plus it's cool to see cats that are really close friends.

If you declaw them, they will calm down. They will also be really pissed off at you for the rest of their 9 lives :mad:

I have 2, both with their claws. They are both at least 3 years old and are still pretty playful, but not like they were when they were kittens. My neighbor has a cat that he got declawed as a kitten and it doesn't ever want to do anything but sleep and walk around like it owns the place.

I would do the catnip thing. They will wig out for 10 minutes and be mellow as hell afterwards. Taking away their claws is about the shittiest thing you can do to a cat, besides chopping his balls off :smirk:

Not necessarily. My parents got our cats declawed (If it were up to me, I wouldn't have got them declawed) They're both nice as hell and they have their frisky moments. I'll always walk downstairs and see them playing with their toys, they still fetch something if you throw it across the house.

Re: original poster

What do you expect? Kittens are full of energy, you have to play with them, give them attention and wait for them to tire themselves out. They can wear themselves out with some mouse toys, a toy on a string works well (if you're lazy :grin:)

I plan to get my cats neutered because I read that they will get along better, and also are at a decreased risk of developing certain health problems.

My mom was a Vet. and I used to go with her to work. I've seen cats being declawed before. Such a gruesome site. I would never have my cats go through that.

I think I will let my cat's keep their claws. They have a scratching post, and don't cause any damage. Plus we have a 9 week old siberian puppy that will pick on them probably if they lose their claws.

Definitely get them fixed, it's better for you AND them. My male cat wasn't quite as arrogant after he got his balls cut off-- in fact he turned into quite the sweetheart :lol:
