Also the scratching pitter patters that she does on you means that she likes you and that she is comfortable around you. Maybe try clipping her nails if it hurts too much? You can get clipper just for cats, I'd recommend getting the vet to show you how to do it for the first time though so you don't hurt her little paws.

Kitten help! ?
Ahh kitten needle claws are fun!
What I've always done when mine were little and started doing that, even though it is a sign of affection - just lightly tap the top of her paw while she's doing it.
It won't hurt her, it'll just shock her.
The jumping thing- mine are allowed on the furniture but to stop them getting on the counter or washing
machine I just constantly redirected. Pick up, put somewhere else, lots of pats and praise.
If she's on the lounge, pick her up and put her elsewhere, have a bit of a play with her away from the couch. It might take a little while for her to learn though.

I have a six week old rag doll plus two adult cats!
I totally forgot what its like to have a kitten in the house! I am lucky that she goes off to the litter tray by herself and she sure tells me when she needs to go or that she is hungry.
Does anyone recommend the kitten milk you can get from the shops or should you not worry about it?

Definitely spray with a water bottle when you have food. Our kitten is a massive greedy guts, like he has serious issues with food from being starved as a baby. He likes to sit on the couch and cuddle with us but he knows when we are eating that he needs to stay away or else he cops a spray of water in his face.

I'm not so sure about the water thing as he got outside and had his feet on the top step of the pool.

Kitten help! ?
I found that it upset my other cats stomachs and led to some very very smelly litter boxes.
The only thing I've found it useful for is very young kittens that are weaning - use it to moisten dry food.

Spray bottle is a good idea for keeping her off furniture. BUT you have to be consistent and realistic. She will continue to jump up while you are sitting for pats etc. Im still trying to stop my boy from being so demanding. As for scratches, as someone else said its a sign of affection likelihood of stopping that to is slim again my boy 1 yr old gets in trouble everytime still doing it. Some cats are just all claws. Try trimming them every second day so it doesn't hurt as much. When she is bigger it'll be less needle like.
