  1. Your awesome!!! Wish all people were this caring .i have 11 feral cats down the street so sad ,u give me hope

  2. I have 2 siblings (M, F -fixed), caught in November (at 16 weeks). Now at 6 months, they like pets esp during mealtime, the boy loves attention more than the girl and likes pets even if not during mealtime. Now progress has slowed and I can't seem to get them used to being held. Very worried. :/

  3. Okay, those very few who gave a thumbs down, step forward. First of all, "Book 'em, Danno." Next, run a background check to see if there is a history of mental illness or psychopathic behavior. Then, give them the opportunity to recant their thumbs down. If they do repent and change to a thumbs up, they may go in peace, but we will be watching them!" If they stubbornly refuse to recant, gather the kindling wood and prepare to burn them at the stake!

  4. this guy isn't some magician; just a patient, hard working and genuine animal lover. I found him to be very soothing plus information is awesome. thank you, skinny cat loving dude. I enjoyed all 3 parts.

  5. Thanks. My youngest feral cat is nor almost 2. I can pick him up as long as it's not to high, He will occasionally jump om my lap(but only while I'm trying to work on my computer. He occasionally demands that I revert to picking up some food and feed him by hand. If he is doing "cat coma" in the sun, he loves to have me scratch his ears and will roll over to expose his belly to let me rub it. Nice job on this, you guys.

  6. Fantastic video series. Your patience is godly. Thank you for all that you did for these kittens and so many others.

  7. 4 kittens were born under my house. They're about 7 weeks old. I trapped two (so far). It has been 3 days and they already come to me when I enter the bathroom they stay in and call for them.

    I'm getting them used to sounds now that they like being petted. Toilet flushes, fans, faucets… I also have a neutered tomcat who will visit (but only for a short while).

    I love them dearly and am hoping to get them into tip top shape for a forever home (including getting them fixed).

  8. You, good sir, are an absolute legend. The fact that you do all of this solely from the bottom of your heart is amazing!

  9. thank you for this because I have a feral kitten who is actually living in my house it decided to adopt my male cat that goes out on a leash and followed him in one day I've done a lot of what you've shown but I did learn a few things also along the way actually he woke me up this morning playing with my toes under the blankets so he's getting there slowly

  10. I love long seasons too. Omg nothing is better than to cuddle with your kitty especially while trying to tame them. You just know they want love and affection but are simply scared ! And when you see the progress they've made ,omg your heart sings with joy !!! Amazing experience !
    P.s yes to bleach! I think I'm obsessed with that thing lol. I bleach my house every day. Love it 馃槅
