Taming Wild Idaho Cats
If you've lived in Idaho for very long, you've probably seen wild cats. Hopefully, not up close and personal. Wild cats can be viscous! If a feral momma cat has babies chances are the babies will be aggressive towards humans.
According to feralcat.com, wild kittens can be tamed with a lot of love and patients. The kittens should be taken from their mother at 4 to 6 weeks old. The process of taming kittens can take up to 6 weeks, depending on their age.
After safely capturing feral kittens, they should not be touched for 2 days. Feral kittens should be taken to a veterinarian and tested for diseases before bringing them home.
The kittens need to feel safe in their environment before being handled. Feral kittens should be kept away from small children and other household pets until they have stopped biting and hissing at humans.
Wild cats often live very sad short lives. So, if a wild kitten can be tamed, it is a worthwhile experience. The question is, would you be able and willing to tame a wild kitten?
