I don't think I can call him feral anymore - he's turning into a little cuddle-bug. I actually was able to clip a couple of his claws last night while he was on my lap begging for cuddles!
He took a swipe at me and tried to bite me though, once he decided that he'd had enough of me touching his paws. I immediately scruffed him, hissed in his face, then eased up on his scruff while continuing to pet him and tell him what a good boy he is.
He was a teeny
bit freaked out, but within 3 minutes was being all cuddly and sweet again!
I continued to pet him (and put the clippers away, doing just a few claws worked for me, considering it was the very first time I'd tried!) and he just lolled all over my lap trying to make sure I got every inch of him that he wanted loved.
He's such a special boy - as much as I love the cuteness of a kitten, I'm really looking forward to his years as a cat, because he is just going to make THE best little companion! And Ginger is getting along with him better and better every day.
