I'm sorry I had to laugh at this one...

Miu LOVES to hide under draping blankets/robes and jump out to attack imaginary foes or the dog.
Seriously though, I don't wanna appear like I'm preaching, but you should have waited it out..asked questions here, browsed a bit, before making the decision. I would never throw Miu out to a shelter or give her away and I love her to bits. However, I do wish I had done more research and calmed down a bit first instead of impulsively adopting her.
If you're afraid of a naughty kitten then it might be better to consider adopting an older cat. They're not as jumpy and don't feel the need to tear around at high speeds. Well, not as much as kittens anyways. Miu is six months old now and she's quite a handful.
Having an indoor cat will reduce the risk of getting certain diseases that outdoor cats can get. However, never say never. I always err on the side of caution. I would get the usual shots given for kittens, at least the first round. A kitten loses the immunity given to them by their mother after a couple of months. In subsequent years, you can opt to either get them or not.
Anyways, Diane, there's a lot of info to digest. If you have any other questions, feel free to post here. There are lot of experts who would be happy to help you.
