Once in a while, we come across a kitten or cat that is either born in an outdoor colony or through back luck and unfortunate experiences is just not socialized and therefore hard to adopt out. However, just because a kitten was born outdoors, or a cat has been living in a colony does not mean they are destined to live their lives as community cats. Here at Town Cats, we often pull cats and kittens from the city shelter. Kittens under 3 months tend to be fairly easy to socialize. Older cats display interest in people but are shy or nervous. Often, they appear feral, but generally we find out that they just need a little love, a little patience and some time to adjust to their new surroundings indoors. Tips for getting started with socializing feral cats and kittens: Remember that cats and kittens are very sensitive to their surroundings and contrary to popular belief, they don’t adjust well to sudden changes. So take it slow, minimal sudden movements, speak softly and give them time. Hissing and spitting is a natural defense mechanism for all cats; it really just says, “I’m really scared and I’m trying to make myself scary so you will go away!” It is normal for cats and kittens to hiss when they go from a familiar colony outdoors into a busy, noisy city shelter that is boiling with the scent of hundreds of other animals. It is quite unnerving to say the least. It is best to put a scared cat or kitten in a cat condo or in a small room like a bathroom, let them get used to their new...
We are in the middle of kitten season and it takes many hands to save these precious lives. There are many ways to help homeless kittens. Can you offer to babysit a litter of kittens while their foster is out of town for a week? Are you patient and kind and willing to love on some reluctant kittens who are still unsure about people? We have healthy, beautiful kittens in need of more TLC and socialization. The kittens need time and love to learn to trust people. We use toys and food to win them over. There is nothing like it—witnessing their curiosity and courage. The feeling of satisfaction is absolutely rewarding when you earn affection from a formerly scared cat; there is nothing quite as good as love freely given — a head butt, an invitation to a belly rub. Do you have a room and time you can dedicate to a special needs’ kitten who requires a special diet and medications four times a day? It is very satisfying to provide care for a special needs who just requires a quiet space and meds. This can be a very short-term commitment of a weekend, a day or even a couple of hours. We sometimes need drivers to drive our kitties to the vet as well. And don’t forget the bottle babies! Sometimes newborn kittens wind up separated from their mama. These baby cats need to be protected and nurtured by fill-in human mamas and papas. Raising bottle baby kittens is a specialty; it is rewarding, demanding, lifesaving work. We will show you how. Spend some time...
