Meet Steve, the semi-feral kitten

I volunteered to foster a kitten that needed help with socializing.

This is Steve.
We just got him today.
He is around 4 months old (Maybe a little older)
He's very shy, lets me pet him very little, and hisses when I get too close, not to mention my 3 other kittens all hiss and growl at him (They're 2 1/2 months, and 3 1/2 months old)

Steve has a long way to go.

My two were just the same but after a couple of days and lots of chicken treats they settled down really well. Good luck.

He has a different color. Hopefully your other cats can adjust to make his transition easier. I am sure you can win him over.

We are the foster care.
We had a kitten like him back in june, she was a bombay kitten (All black) Who was just as scared as him.

2 months later, she was a happy kitten, running around, purring, and snuggling with my other cat, reeses.

He will be okay.
He is already showing progress by letting me pet him.

AWW, he is a sweet looking boy. Good luck with him. Treats and lots of playtime will have him come around in no time.
