My new kitten's favorite spot is my shoulder. Is this normal? Should I discourage it? If so, how? I haven't had a cat in 11 years, and never a kitten.

I would discourage it if I were you. It's cute when he's little, but it's not so much fun to have a full-grown cat continually claw its way up onto your shoulder (personal experience).

It's normal IMO. I know a lot of people whose cats/kittens like to be close to your head/face. It's like a sign that they love and trust you or whatever. Kinda sweet. But you should probably discourage it if he's trying to climb up you.

as I said, I've never had a kitten before, how long does it take a cat to be full grown, as in adult. Also, will she calm down? She's a little devil at the moment.

Thanks for the input, but how do I get her to stop? She's sleeping on my shoulder now as I type, but in the past, I've removed her, and she just climbs back up over and over again...she's stubborn. How does one discipline a cat? It's so much easier with dogs.

Maybe two-ish years. She should calm down the older she gets. But sometimes hyper cats are hyper their whole lives until they're elderly. Maybe you should think about getting another kitten for her to be hyper with.

She plays with our dogs. The dogs tire out, but she just keeps going. She's not destructive or anything, it's quite cute, I'm just concerned because the cats I've had in the past have been chill, loving cats that just lay on you and purr. Do cats' personalities just change with age, or do they need to be taught or rewarded with calmer behavior?

she just wants to be close to you, you're her new 'mommy' now, when she climbs up on your shoulder just put her somewhere else that is still close to you like next to you or in your lap, my cat likes to climb up onto the back of the couch and lay on top of it behind me when im sitting in it. for discipline a spray bottle filled with water works well, or a can full of bolts or just something metallic that will make unpleasant noise is another I've heard of.

also, we plan to have her spayed, will this change her behavior? It didn't change our dogs' behavior, they just got a little fatter. Sorry to sound like such a cat virgin, but I have no experience cat upbringing.

also just thought of this, maybe get her a bed or a cat tree type thing she can play, climb and sleep in. Cats like to have their own spots especially if there's other animals like dogs in the house and it might help with her hyperness to keep her busy.

Sounds like the kitty will be quite active after neutering. Cats are unpredictable like that.

We did get her a "Kitty City" Just a cave type cube with a scratch post, dangling jingle balls, and we put a small neck pillow in there. She's slept in there a few times, like during the day, but at night she mews loudly and scratches at the door until I let her in. She usually sleeps on my chest.

Discourage that, worse case you can teach him to sleep on your belly. Although from my experience it's a pain in the ass especially if the cat won't make up his mind on whether or not to lay on my stomach. But it's adorable when he does because he rests his head under my chin
