New kitten

Hi, I'm new here. I just got a stray kitten, it's not older then a month, found it by the side of the road next to a bag. Hope i can get some tips here on how to tame it.

Thank you for rescuing this poor little kitty as he might have got hit by a vehicle or a predator would have eaten him, but for kitty's proper upbringing, suggest you contact your local humane society, cat rescue or failing that find someone who has a mother cat with young kittens. If kitty is properly introduced with scent swapping, most mother cats will accept a kitten that isn't its own. Kittens go through a very important socialization from the time they are born to 3 months old, where they learn their cat manners through discipline by the mother cat and the rough and tumble play with their litter mates when they are kittens. That's when they learn to control their bite and claws, and read and understand "cat language" in communication. It's not uncommon for a hand-raised kitten that has not had that experience to end up being a cat that bites hard and uses its claws on people. If you want to keep the kitty, offer to pay for its upkeep, vaccinations, etc. when it's ready to leave the litter for a new home. All the best.
