    Hi,

    I've got an 8 week old kitten but she tends to scratch and bite hands/feet, how do i stop this and is this normal?

    It's normal. Withdraw contact if she does this, and growl slightly like a mother cat would. Try to avoid games that get her completely over excited.

    It sounds like play. My cat was a lot like this, and in the end she got better after we played with her, a lot. All cats are different, but for mine throwing rubber balls and screwed up paper was great.

    forgot to add, my kitten has fleas (the bane of my life) even tho the owner we got her from her said she didnt. Any advice on this?
    We've been hoovering twice a day and using indurex flea spray. Also been trying to comb out her fleas whilst shes feeling sleepy.
    Is this effective

    We use spot-on treatments. But you need a kitten one, not an adult one.

    If that's been done then you don't need to do anything more to the kitten. Just spray the carpets.
