Post Reply Help! I can't stop kicking kittens. Hear me out first!

Just hear me out! Hehehehaha.
This is a pretty minor problem and I don't even think the kittens get hurt but I wanna see what solution you can come up with.
I have 5 kittens living in my house. I live in a very small house. They like to hide in little places where my feet go when I walk thus resulting in a kicked kitten. Even worse still is that they run in front of you when you walk and they get kicked. One of them attacks legs and you don't even need to kick him. He does it for you. You can just stand there and he'll charge your legs jump in the air and bounce off like a ball.
What should I do? Should I just watch where I step better? That doesn't solve them running in front of my step.
If you can't think of anything then can you take this as like a creative writing thing and give me a really silly answer?

Bubble wrap your feet & legs so they don't get injured. https://youtu.be/M9o4Phhg6EQ

Have you tried hanging them from the ceiling?
Or putting them in an inescapable playpen?

Try putting some "Cat walks" on your walls. Space some platforms ( like shelves, 12x12 inches should work but a professional with animals who does this might be able to give you better advice ) so the kittens can jump up/down from one to the next. The highest up platform will be 12 inches wide but span almost the entire length of the wall which gives your cats space to walk. Cats are natural climbers/predators who enjoy being above the action so a simple DIY. task like this should take care of a lot of your issues. Alternatively and/or in addition to this you may want to consider moving to a bigger area as you make it sound like the space is far from big enough to support five healthy cats. Images related.

I mean we support 6 people and 6 cats just fine normally. It's just that now their are eleven. It's not a super small house but it's crowded. We're getting rid of some of them though. We certainly aren't keeping 5 kittens either. More like 2 and getting rid of 1 cat.

Kick the kittens out of the house. Then they won't be underfoot for you to keep kicking. (Well, that's what I would do because I'm allergic to kittens, and have no desire to cohabit with them.)

BTW, moved this over to the "Advice, Info, Recommendations" forum, since it's requesting personal advice.

Kittens are pretty tough, I think it's fine as long as you're not actually stepping ON them.
