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.

    tulah meera. oyen tuh asyik nak main ngan adik2 dia je. dia hulurkan tangan dia kut jaring2 sangkar tu. harap2 anak kucing tu jinaklah nanti. sebab saya baca, there is also small possibility yg kucing macam tu tak akan dapat dijinakkan langsung.

    i say never let the kittens out yet. Most probably Oyen would wring their neck and kill them, since male cats are usually very territorial, and color pun dekat2 sama.

    how about letting them out, removing the cage from sight and begin putting food out the same time everyday They may come to you..they may not. Cats will eventually just work it out. They’re still young, treat them kindly and they’ll respond. I’d bite too if you locked me in a cage. “You catch more bees with honey” The worst they’ll do is fight and eventually ignore each other. Give it a try, but resist wanting to intervene
