I just finished raising 7 foster kittens and not one of them bites hands. The trick is to stop any play immediately
after a bite or scratch with a sharp "no" command, and then continue play with a toy after they have calmed for a bit. Consistancy is key for this to work and hands can never, ever be used for play
(such as wiggling of fingers and such). Hiting should never be used as a punishment, it doesn't work.
Good luck and we require pictures in exchange for advice
