About our cat!

I'm so sick and tired of him! And I don't know what else to do. If he sees you walking, he tries to attak your legs - or any body part that comes close to him. He does this when i'm carrying Hailey, and it'll almost knock me over trying to get him off my leg. I have stratches all over my legs from him. He's got plenty of toys. We can't play with him, because he tries to attack us. He never :knock on wood: tries to do anything to Hailey thankfully. But I cannot stand this anymore. I firm "no" doesn't work, water, coins, nothing! He thinks its all a game! I think alot of it has to do with the fact he's still a kitten, [he'll be one begginning of september]. But this is driving me in saine. I can't take it anymore, I don't know what else to do. If he doesn't stop, i'm going to have to find another home for him, because I cannot deal with that. But it seems like everything I try [we try] doesn't work. He contiues to think its all a game. Any advice on how to get this to STOP!?

Thanks

I've looked at a few books at the petstores, and they say that its a "kitten thing". I can understand it partially, and expect a little bit, but not to this extreme, and they don't offer any suggestions to elimate the behavior as much as possible.

I know my Braxton [he's 2 in October - OMG], he got out of his puppy phase soon after he turned 1. Its just getting there thats fustrating. I try to keep in mind its just a phase, he's still a kitten, but i'm afriad its becoming a habit with him, more then just "being a kitten".
