Yeah, they always say those are called "love bites" but if you ask me, they're more like "watch as I test the most exposed parts of your body and plot your murder whilst you treat me like a companion bite"

Everyone gets exactly the cat they deserve.

In this case though, I think it's just a case of getting used to each other.
Young cats are very playful and anything moving in the dark under the covers must be killed with extreme prejudice :-)
She will settle down and be more calm.
Been through it with a few cats.

Sounds like she's too young to have been taken away from her mother and is trying to nurse from you. She'll stop in a few weeks, but don't use the person/shop you got her from again.


You think the kitten was trying to nurse from her face? There is obviously no reason that it would be active considering cats are mostly nocturnal. Or maybe, just MAYBE it was being playful. Go to the corner and think about what you just said.

Yes, I do, since I've seen it happen on many occasions - kittens will suckle anything that's warm, including elbows. There is indeed a distance between suckling and biting, but since kittens tend to have sharp teeth it's easy to mistake one for the other, especially if you're groggy.

She's a kitten, she wants to play and be active especially at night. My nine year old cat used to be the same, but around a year or so he calmed down, sleeps with me every night. Huge cuddler, I think you'll have a loving cat.
P.S. My boy always gives me kisses :p

Aw, no, she's just being playful. A lot of kittens bite as part of play. You need to get her out of that habit. And make sure you get her some (quiet) toys to keep her busy while you sleep.

This is one advantage to adopting older cats, although my eight-year-old cat (whom I've had since she was two) can still be rambunctious at times.
