You need to be the other kitten since she does not have a playmate now. I always encourage kittens to be adopted in pairs for this very reason. When she bites you need to screech very loudly "OWWW!" and withdraw your hand/arm. Clip her nails or take her to a groomer that will do it for a few dollars. I find the yelling "OWWW!!!" works really well. Just this AM I was being savagely attacked by a 10 week old and I yelled it and she backed off and licked it better - just as she would if it were another kitten. Of course that lasted about 3 seconds and she was attacking my hand again but it does work. PLEASE consider a second kitten. ANY kitten. That is going to be the BEST way to teach this baby the proper kitten social graces!
