Buttercup, Briar & Scout

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This last October a co-worker approached me about three feral kittens in her backyard, and would I help. It took about 2 weeks, but I eventually trapped them all! With the help of the advice and support from the members of this site, I was able to successfully socialize them. They are all in their new homes, and doing beautifully. Their original thread was lost in "The Great Crash of 2004" (originally posted in the caring for strays and ferals board). Every so often someone is kind enough to ask about them, so I thought I'd start a thread here so all could admire the beauty and courage of Buttercup, Briar, and Scout.

I have so many pictures of them that I'll post them a few at a time, and add as I resize and host them. I hope you enjoy them!

Here's Scout on his first day. I was expecting a scared, hissing feral kitten. What I didn't know was that he was ready, willing, and able to get in touch with his "inner housecat":

Can you see how stressed he was?:

Here he is a couple days later:

After Scout, I trapped Briar. I'll admit he was pretty intimidating, even for a kitten! He was much more "feral" than Scout, but he still quite literally took my breath away, he was so beautiful. See for yourself, here he is day 1:

A nice improvement by day 5...still wouldn't let me touch him, but he was much more relaxed:

Here he is on day 7:

A few days later came Buttercup. She took the longest to trust me, but she was worth all the effort. Here she is day breaks my heart to see the scared look in her eyes:

Here's Briar "protecting" her on day one:

Here she is a couple days later. She was still pretty shy, but at least she didn't look completely terrified:

Sorry this is such a long post. If there's enough interest, I'll post more in the future. I'm trying to post them somewhat sequentially, as best I can remember.

Thanks for looking!
