Feral kittie sucess story / Thanks for your support
On May 3rd I adopted 2 kitties (8 week old sisters) from the Minneapolis city pound. The clerk informed me that they were ferals who had not had any contact with with humans prior to being picked up by animal control.
When I got them home I thought I had made a huge mistake. I had never seen kittens so totally frightened of a human before. One of them even tried to scare me off by hissing at me and baring her teeth - she looked so pathetic it broke my heart.
I went on this forum for advice. The advice was to take it slowly. I did.
The advice has paid off. I can't get over how affectionate the cats have become. They follow me all over the apartment. They are both wonderful lap kittens. Often, when I am reading, there are periods of up to 6 hours when one or both of them are on my lap.
Thanks for the support.
