    LOL Welcome to the world of having a kitty.

    My cat really responded well to her cat "tree". You know the ones made out of carpet. The only thing you can do is try and distract her with her own toys and games. Try and wear her out during the day so you can get some sleep at night.

    As for the tree you could try some animal repellant like apple bitters. I've heard that works on cats too.

    Maybe you should get an adult kitty next time. There's lots at the shelters that need homes.

    Catnip can work wonders. At six months old your kitten should be old enough - or getting old enough - to respond to catnip. A little nip in the morning when she starts winding up might help.

    And get her a cat gym. One with climbing posts and a place to hide - preferably covered with rope, or carpet as the second choice. (Cats prefer scratching on rope over carpet.) You can even put some catnip on the gym.

    Some cats like to roll up and play in throw rugs, too.

    Every once in awhile you get a cat that gets hyper on catnip, but most of them get pretty mellow - stoned, like, uh, totally . . . ;)

    Wow, thanks for the tip on catnip. My 1-year old is crazy. In the morning he runs through the house banging into things like it's a race. I'll give the catnip a try.
