Well I got three new cats last week sometime. A mother, and her two longhaired kittens who are about 7 weeks old, maybe 8 now. They're in a large metal dog crate in the milkroom of the barn. The mother is the sweetest little thing, she follows me around to get petted, and rubs on me... so much that I trip over her, lol. However, where she came from the owners have too many cats and don't really like them... Situation where someone dumped some cats, and the family felt bad for them and fed them, so they stuck around. At first they were happy because they took care of thier mouse problem but now they have several breeding cats at thier house, and almost all are semi to totally untame. I think I took one of the only tame cats there. Anywho, these kittens are untame. So much so that every time I reach in the cage they roll over and hiss, cowering away from my hand. They look so mad when ever I pet them or pick them up. When I do pick them up they don't bite or scratch, but you can tell they DON'T like being held or handled. I was thinking that I should whip out a can of tuna before I feed them, and tempt them around to me with the tuna, when thier bellies are empty, and get them to eat out of my hand or at least near me, where I can pet them. The only reason I'm so concerned is because they're barncats and I don't spend more than an hour even in the milkroom this time of year and no more than 15-30 minutes with them daily. I do think that tame cats will stick around better, IMO, and I can't stand keeping unferal cats as well... Especially if they get hurt to a point where they need vet care and they can't be caught. I almost think that I should try to find them another home where they can have some 1 on 1 treatment, but I don't want to give away my future mouse-catchers!
