How to socialize feral kittens

    This crew was living in a pile of furniture behind an apartment building in Brooklyn, NY. It's a very common scene during the summer months - so what do you do?

    This video walks through the steps you can follow to socialize younger kittens who are around 2-3 months old. Make sure you take a TNR class (trap neuter return) before using traps (visit flatbushcats.org/tnr for more info).

Excellent explanation of the socialization process. Only one "trick" I can suggest to add to your toolbox. Get a small damp cloth and use it to groom the kittens, especially around their ears and face. Many cats seem to like this. Maybe it feels like mom's tongue. You don't want it to be too wet because most cats don't like being wet. But they don't mind being "licked" or actions that feel like being licked. And they will let you know when they have had enough. You can sometimes get them to tolerate having their feet cleaned as well.

PS I left a video of a cat's purr playing when I lay down and she settles down and take's a nap with me. So many people live in apartments that will not allow a person to foster cat's or dog's . Since I have a black cat already approved by the complex I believe I can keep her and no one will know,. She is not allowed anywhere near the front door. It's the only door I have. I taped an area off inside the door 🚪 and if she steps in it I go psssssssst and give the area on the floor a spray of water from a water bottle I keep handy.

I live in a small studio apartment and I have two cats that are 12 years old. Every night they like to lay at my doorstep on the cool cement right outside my door and there's a huge Bush that I lay a blanket on because they like to lay there under the bush and the cool of the evening and they never wander off. They're fat and lazy it's like three old ladies sitting their ways living together. Anyway I don't know how she got past the gauntlet and was living under my bed for at least 2 weeks before I knew she was there. I would hear a grumble for my in a hiss for my cat every now and then but they were not the threatening kind of hiss and grimble cats make. I figured it was two sisters fighting and well it wasn't. Anyway, I taped a couple of my Amazon boxes together where they would not slide around cut some holes in them so she could see out what was happening on on the outside and I set up a little private feeding water station in a small litter box for her took about 2 weeks I just ignored her but talk to her told her I knew she was under there and now she's my best friend I can't even go to the bathroom without her following me even if I think she's asleep she gets up and follows me she's a sweetheart she's what Carson City would have called a residential cat now I have to find a veterinarian during this covid outbreak that will take her vaccinate her and fix her for me I'm just not sure how old she is when I should make that call any tips?

depends on the cat to an extent and the age. most groups / shelters do not like to adopt out cats under 6mo / old solo and either have to have another cat in the house or some other form of interaction readily available. I plan to adopt out a pair or trio the next time I need more kitteh love.

Beautiful video! The information is great. I've taken in several feral kittens and none of them was socialized properly. Most of them remained very leery of people. The grown ferals will sometimes "come around" better, and food is always the motivation to tolerate me.

Weirdly, my cat was a feral kitten who just made the decision for herself that I would be her human. I knew her mother and she was skin and bones when I came across her while smoking behind my apartment. I kind of scratched the kitten between her ears while finishing my cigarette and then went to go inside. Her tiny body just came right along and followed me inside. That was 8 years ago now and she is the most friendly cat I have ever had. She loves belly rubs and licking me lol

I think you’re relying on food too much to gain their acceptance. Just pick them up and hold them tightly and pet them and let them know you’re not a threat.

Back when I was young, our family lived in a place with many stray kittens. One of the kittens (a runt) literally just came up to us and let us take it into the house The other cat we had didn't like it at first They get along these days (also, I'm at college, so I'm away from home and rather miss our cats)

Excellent work. We rescued a feral mom who had two litters. We had no problems socializing the kittens, but the mom was another story. She began to get friendly when she saw how well we cared for her first litter outside, so she agreed to have her second litter indoors. She was quite skittish with regard to sudden movements, and it took a full two years before she was completely comfortable around us. Now she sleeps with me and is one of the gang. Patience is the name of the game.

I have some kittens like that in my yard, someone let me touch them and pet them. I am unable to let them in the house because I already have three cats that do not get along well with others. I’m trying to find them a new home but it’s really hard to around here. I have six about that age in the video and there are three that are only a little over a week old that are still with her mama who is very protective.

I know fostering kittens is really amazing, but I wouldn't be able to let them go. I'm a responsible person who cares deeply of animals and their well being, and to let some stranger take my babies... I don't think so, once I get a deep bond with someone, human or animal I want to keep that beautiful relationship forever. Which is why I can't foster, only adopt.
