Comment on Taming Feral Cats

Great job Barb! I would wait until you can handle the kittens before introducing them to the others. I understand your dilemma about the Revolution but I think you did the right thing by treating them. To help them trust you again, I would try bits of cooked chicken for a special treat.  Play with them using feathers on a string to draw them out and then reward them with the treat.  Good luck and congrats again on getting the colony registered.
