my kitten from ****.....

smokie is a kitten from ****. please tell me this is normal kitten behaviour, as i have never had a kitten before. i walk, he claws the back of my feet. i sleep he bites my feet.i sit, he bites my arms and hands. i stand, he climbs all the way from my ankles to my back. i am wondering if he is a wild (feral) kitten, or if this is normal. please tell me!!!!

How old is Smokie?

Brandy used to love poncing on my feet under the covers when the moved. Cute when she was a kitten. Now that she's big and can really claw feet through the covers I regret encouraging this behavior.

When you have playtime with Smokie do you use your hands or do you use toys? It could be that he's seeing your hands and arms and feet as toys and as a kitten he thinks all day is playtime.
I would pick him off of you, look him in the face, say "NO" and redirect his attention to a toy or scratching post. Also with my cats it would help if I screamed "OUCH!" so they would know that they were hurting me and had gone too far. For the most part it worked.
Good luck with your little terror

This is called "play aggression" and this thread might give you some insight as to why:
