 TESTIMONIALS > Taming Feral Kittens
Testimonial By: Wynter        Publish Date: 2002-04-01

Dear Eugenie
 Just wanted to let you know about my new little mission - actually, four little missions. I got a phone call the other day about 4 "surprises" underneath a container at the back of KEAG’s (Kommetjie environmental awareness group) permaculture garden. The same place where I tamed "Kacey" with the peacock feather.

 I went to investigate and found four very wild little kittens, about 6-7 weeks old. Now I haven’t been doing much feral cat callout’s as I was finding I couldn’t cope with the number of cats and kittens that had to be put to sleep. These four are different though, partly because they are in the environment that I first experienced hands on success with TTouch Taming, and partly because something is telling me that I have to work with them.

 It has only been 2 days. The first time I put down food for them they were so starving, that their hunger overcame their fear of me. Using a twig (I’m out of feathers!) I stroked them and did tiny TTouch circles on their skinny bodies. I found they were very accepting of the twig as it was a familiar part of their surroundings. Last night I managed to touch all of them with my hands, still doing TTouch circles. This morning I managed to pick one up for a little while. If you know anything about feral kittens you will know how unusual this is. When I first got to them I sat with them for about an hour just communicating with them - sending them pictures of warmth and safety. I’ve been reading Amelia Kincade’s book "Straight from the horses mouth". I found this has helped tremendously. Now when I go to them, before I even put their food out, I spend 10 minutes just sending them loving thoughts, and slowly blinking my eyes to them - they start blinking back as a sign of accepting my presence and feeling more comfortable than scared. I also placed an old t-shirt of mine where they sleep to let them get used to my smell, and associate it with warmth and safety.

Thanks for all your news; I will let you know how I get on with the kits. 
Take Care
