A feral mother cat and her four kittens were seen at an old barn by a kind man. He and his family decided to start feeding the cats and trying to get them to be more social. It took them more than two months before the kittens showed a sign of trust and allowed the humans to touch them for the first time.
“Rescued four feral kittens from an old barn. Took a long time to socialize them but worth every minute,” said reddit user calio88.
Each and every time they fed the kitties, they moved the feeding dish a bit closer to their house until they reached the back porch. Then one day, they managed to get the door closed and the kittens had successfully moved in!
They trapped the mama cat and had her spayed and returned to the barn and they continue to feed her every day.
“Mama is always around the house and property. She’s at the front door every morning and evening for meals. The kittens have seen her many times.” he said. (reddit)
All four of the kittens became great indoor cats! their names are Miss Dolly, Lloyd, Little Missy, and “PK” Pip Kitty.
Pip Kitty has grown into a little lion cat!
“Mama is truly feral and would be very difficult to socialize. I am able to touch Mama now when I feed her so maybe there is hope. Takes a lot of time and patience but she’s doing good and is happy and well fed,” he added.
Once feral, now family.
