As I've mentioned elsewhere, I adopted two feral kittens nearly two weeks ago and they're getting comfortable with me and my husband. When I feed them, I stroke them and pick them up and put them down a little. I throw balls for them to play with and dangle a toy mouse in front of them and throw it for them. They are happy to sleep, clean themselves and play near us (we're in the same room together all the time). They will also sometimes approach us and sniff at us, and they particularly like to walk all over my laptop keyboard. But I can't pick them up when they're not eating, and get hissed at if I get too close without food or toys, generally. (The hissing is certainly getting quieter though.) Big movements make them run away. Does anyone have any tips for getting further with this, or is it simply a matter of time and they'll eventually start coming over and snuggling etc? lol I haven't once had a purr from stroking them while they eat. I don't know if I'm 'doing it wrong' - I haven't had cats before this. To be fair, I don't think I've heard them purr at each other, either. They're about 9 weeks old, I think, for reference.
