Taming and Finding Homes for Feral Kittens

I have two feral cats that live near our house. They have 11 kittens between them. I would like to trap the older two and get them neutered and release them. I don't know what to do about the kittens. I would like to find homes, but they will need to be tamed. How do you tame a feral kitten?

We have 4 formerly feral kittens who are now happy spoiled house cats albeit with a love of the great outdoors!
Central to taming them was patience and providing food. When you do the great thing of neutering the mothers the kittens will be more likely to accept food from you and so begin to see you as a good thing.
As long as you don't try to grab them suddenly which will frighten them and make the whole processs take longer you will soon be able to gain their trust.
We found little pieces of cheese were irresistable to little cats, these days they just sit by the fridge and tell us they want some!

we live in a mobile home park when I first moved here there were over 20 cats just around my yard, I started feeding them and eventually I found homes for all of them. They were all spayed and Neutered and lived a wonderful happy life. Now all of a sudden some re-appeared and one is feral and one is not, all I ever did was start slowly and feed them every single day and talk sweet to them so they relate YOU and FOOD together, they will begin to trust you and you should be able to start petting them after a few months. Good Luck...The oldest cat we have was a very lucky cat, he must have got under someone's car fan as we saw him all bloody and his tail hanging off, I was going to take him to the vet but her ran and was terrified.

I eventually gained his trust and his tail fell off but we brought him in and made him a house cat, he still has his war scars which hair never grew back. He turned out to be the friendliest of all of our cats, that was so long ago and he is so happy. I am so glad I did not turn my back on these furry friends that have added so very much joy to our lives....

Contact forgotten Cats, you can google for website. I live in your area and they came out to my house, trapped and then spayed/neutered, flea treated and rabies shot and then returned 4 cats on my street. They are a group of amazing volunteers.
