How can I encourage my kitten to warm up to me?

Posted by David on December 5th, 2010

If your kitten’s giving you the cold shoulder, here are some do’s and don’ts that will help you make friends with your feline…

Do hold kitty often. Pick her up gently and cradle her until she relaxes.

Don’t make loud noises or use sudden movements. Do move slowly as you approach, and get down on her level when possible.

Do feed at set times, so your kitten will learn to associate you with food. As you set the bowl in front of her, talk to your kitty sweetly, and gently pet her. Then, allow her to quietly eat.

Do keep a supply of toys on hand so you can play with your pet. It’s a fun way to bond. But don’t engage in aggressive play.

Do be patient! With a little TLC, it’s a safe bet Whiskers will warm up to you.
