Taming feral kittens – Day 1
Day 1. The 2 feral kittens from Perlis that brought home, they do show a little improvement. At first, I can’t even go near their cage, and they start to growl, hiss and even spit when tried to look at them.
But, I kept sitting there, and the most effective bribe in taming them is food. I want them to think, when there is me around, then there will be delicious food. And I feed them using spoon. At first, they seem so reluctant to come nearer. But I guess hunger overcome their fear.
I kept the cage in my living room, and with me and my housemate moving around a lot there, they slowly come to the idea to accept human as part of their lives, and tonight, they no longer growl or hiss whenever I set next to their cage. But still, my attempt to touch them resulting the hiss and spit.
Oyen also has been a great help. From afar, what I can see, the kittens has no problem with Oyen being around. I guess Oyen should calm them a little by acting a role of foster mother.
What can be more joyful to see my 3 cats sleeping together. I bet Oyen can’t wait for the kittens to be tame enought that they don’t have to be kept captive anymore. And I also truly can’t wait for that moment to come too.
