Hello J Java Lady and sweet kitten! Well, your kitten is active and very healthy, it sounds like, and it's very normal for kittens to be very active, especially at dawn and dusk and afterwards! INTERACTIVE play with a wand toy, such as da Bird or Cat Dancer, widely available wherever cat supplies are sold, online or at stores, is what kittens crave and you can give your kitten a play session for about 10-15 minutes right before bed! Ideally, several play sessions a day would be preferable. Another good thing would be to adopt a playmate for him. Kittens are usually very social, because most kittens have siblings. They play together, learn about life together, cuddle and sleep together. And two kittens *and cats* will provide companionship for one another when you have to go out to work or whatever.Hi every one I have a new 4 month old kitten .

That's great! Simple and homemade toys are often the favorites of cats and kittens.thank you for your advice I made a wand toy from an old wand and crinkle ribbon
Just remember to be soft and gentle with cats always. NEVER hit them and NEVER yell at them. NEVER be angry with them. They are more sensitive than humans, and very intelligent. They deserve our respect, protection, and love.ok thanks for the advise I will suggest what you said
My husband thinks its too much for us but I am not giving up.I still don't understand. Why are you considering surrendering the kitten?
