It may or may not take a long time, but don't force yourself on the kitten. Here is how I would proceed. It has worked for me before.
1) Get it on a regular feeding schedule the same time each night.
2) After you have it coming in every night, watch it eat out of the corner of your eye from a distances. Don't look directly at it. That would be an offensive move.
3) After it doesn't seem to mind this. Try and approach it while eating. Note the spot where it runs away and mark that spot.
4) Move back off a foot and place a lawn chair turned 90 degrees from the food dish. Do this for a couple of days.
5) When the cat is comfortable with the chair, sit in it when fedding. Still have the chair at a 90 deg angle from the food dish. Look at the cat only from the corner of your eye.
6) When the cat is done eating, dangle your arms over the chair and stare into space. The cat may come to you and brush up against your hand or legs. By all means, DO NOT attempt to pick it up.
7) Continue to using this approach, moving the chair closer and closer to the feed dish. Eventually the cat should display #6 behavior.
It may take a long time, but this approach has worked for me. As much as you may like to pick it up and cuddle it, please let the kitty determine the speed of contact. If you try and press it, I guarantee you will go a couple of steps backwards.
Patience is a virtue. Please take your time and only move at the speed of the kitty's acceptance. Good luck
My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.
