Help w/ kitten

Tomorrow will officially be three weeks since I adopted my female orange/white tabby cat, after losing my previous cat of ten years to breast cancer which spread to her lungs.
She was 2 years old when we adopted her so I didn’t face the issues that I am with my 9 month old kitten.
She still doesn’t know her name. How long does that generally take? She has the attention span of a gnat.
We don’t know much about her but we’ve gathered that she was a street cat cause she climbs up the poles on the cat condo rather than jump from platform to platform, she goes for the kill with all her toys and she digs to Timbuktu in her litter box.
She hunkers down in her box and rolls in it, will she outgrow this?
Any advice will help and be much appreciated.

Outstanding insight and advice

Wow, I had no idea how much my behavior influences my pets. I'm so grateful to host Susan for continually pointing out how simple changes on my part can result in huge positive changes in my furry friends, i.e. what to do about warning barks.

Also, love the guests and their insights that Susan brings to the show. Thanks! :-)
