kitten hiding/scared

Sometimes when im walking around the house and walk near/towards my kitten she would sometimes run away as if she was scared. She would also hide next to doors (thinking that shes invisible) and jumps at my feet when i walk past. This behavior only happens sometimes. My question is, is it normal?

To cats, we're 100 foot tall giants. My girls sometimes scatter when I'm walking through the house. They're just trying to stay out of the way. Plus, kittens are even more jumpy/nervous/excitable.

The jumping at your feet when you walk past is a game, I used to laugh when my girls did that!

Yes, it's normal, worry not! Jasper will often run right up to me, give me a wild eyed look, then scamper off if I make the slightest movement! He does this when he's in one of his hyper crazy kitten moods. He will also hide and jump out as if to pounce, but will ALWAYS recoil if he sees his target is human haha it's like he wants to but he didn't realize how big the prey he was stalking actually is he usually does this when he wants to play but I can't at the moment but am walking through the house... like when I'm cleaning or cooking dinner.

Get eye level. Imagine how much taller you are in proportion to your cat....

When I 1st adopted Robin , he would crane his neck looking up at me (I'm 6'4) and dash ker-pow! INTO the spare mattress! Finally he figured out I'm fairly nice as far as giants go, and he GRADUALLY relaxed. And he discovered, giants are fun to climb!
