Why is my kitten is attacking my legs without biting or scratching?
She's about 2 months old now. She just attacks my leg and bear-hugs as I walk past, but does not bite or claw into me. She holds on for a second or so then dashes off. Do I need to worry about this becoming an issue later on, or will she grow out of it? I don't mind as it doesn't hurt me at all, but I don't want it to possibly evolve into a more aggressive attack later down the line.

She's learning to play "prey". SOmehting her mother and/or siblings would normally do. If she begins to use bites or claws, then you would need to discourage the behavior by immediately pushing away and saying firmly NO! THEn wlak away, do not pay attention to the kitten for soem tiem. This will discourage inappropriate play.
