Taming feral kittens – Day 3
Day 3 with my quest of taming the 2 feral kittens. I’m sticking with bribing them with the food, by means of feeding to their mouth using spoon. At first, both are reluctant to get nearer, so I left the food in the food bowl. The kitten came closer and eat, then I start feeding the spoon to the their mouth again, until they eat from the spoon. While they eat, I just stroke the kitten’s head, signifying that I’m not a threat to them.
Well, day 3 seems to make a big progress, especially the white kitten. He doesn’t fear me feeding the spoon in anymore, and I started to put the food on my ficker, and let he lick it off my finger. Now, if I stretch the toy into the cage, the white kitten play with me, and that is really a big progress.
Looking at the kitten used to my existance already, so lets experiment a bit by using Oyen. I guess I want to test 2 things
- How the kittens react with Oyen being nearby
- What Oyen’s reaction when left together with the kittens
My early experiment shows that, Oyen loves the kitten. And here is Oyen, licking the orange kitten.
And this is Oyen again, playing a parenting role here. Hehehe. He just looks like a mother cat (for a male cat). Yes. The cage is quite messy. But what can you expect when leaving 2 very active and energetic kittens inside a small space with litter tray and food bowl inside? They ended up messing the litter and left over food all over the place.
