Angry biting kitten

heres a weird question ,. my mom and i have bottle fed her kitten eggroll (yes her names eggroll my brother named her) since she was a day old we found her outside well i did n brought her to my mom shes now about 5 weeks old and has a nasty habit of coming to find me when im sleeping and attacking me. I was wondering why she does this ? she bites my mom as well but only when she picks her up is this a term of love to them ? when she bites we put her down and ignore her but it seems to be getting worst.

they go through this in litters and the litter mates and mom teach them that this is annoying and not polite behavior, when she bites i would squeel like a hurt kitten and then walk away from it and ignore it for a while and do it every time it will get the idea.

If it still does it moma cat scruffs the kitten or bites its toes or whatever, teaching it that it is not nice. you could scruff the kitten lightly and even put it in a crate every time its naughty.

Make sure you give it lots of play time with toys though to teach it that it can play bite and whatever on other things. You can also get it a rubber puppy teething toy, it may need to bite something.

iv tried making a noise when she does it she seems to think its funny and wags her tail like a dog and does it again . but it might not be such a bad idea to try other ways she has lots of toys and even a teething toy its just for whatever reason she finds me when im asleep and attacks me only when im at my moms (i dont live with her) and my mom when she picks her up.
