Four days ago I adopted a 5-6month old feral girl (Emmy). We had success taming a 3 month old feral kitten earlier this year and I fell in love with this girl and couldn't leave her (her 2 litter mates were being adopted together). Currently, she is crated in our bedroom. At night she cries but when we open the crate she comes out (happily) and explores and climbs. We have another kitten (Oscar) who is the same age as her and they both get along well. We were going to wait to introduce them, but Oscar snuck into the bedroom and set up camp right next her to cage. He refuses to leave her side! At night when we let her out he chases her and they play, and she does not seem stressed out by him one bit.
She is stressed out by my boyfriend and I, on the other hand. She is eating and using the litter box. We only feed her wet food when we are there, and we spoon feed her chicken flavored baby food (and pet her as we are doing so). She still hisses and spits if we get too close, we have to really convince her to come to the baby food.
I know it has only been 4 days but I am wondering if there is anything else anyone would suggest? I know people say that 6 months is a little too old to socialize, but I really think we can do this and give this little girl a wonderful home!
Thanks, everyone :)
