I had a client call me and tell me that they had five kittens from a feral in their neighborhood, would I be willing to foster them. I asked how big they were and she said they were still tiny, so I agreed. Well she brought them in a large metal dog crate in the back of a pickup truck (no shell), so they were very stressed out. They are about 4 months old and very wild (one of them got my hand good carrying the cage into the clinic). I have separated them with 2 in 2 cages and the worst one in a cage alone ( he was making the rest worse). Anyone have any methods for taming kittens that has worked well for them in the past? I sit in front of the cages and talk to them and makes sure that they understand the food and water come from me, I also got them some toys for each cage and an interactive one to play with them with. 4 of them I can pick up (though they hate to be held) and pet, one will even talk to me, but the one kitten is very wild so I am open to suggestions.
