Kohl is a very outgoing cat and loves to be around other people. He loves to play with a fish on the end of a stick with anyone that comes to my house to visit. He loves to eat string cheese out of a cat snack dispenser. Kohl makes sure people are watching him get his string cheese out of the cat snack dispenser.
Garfunkel and Conrad are basically my cats only. They love to be held and petted by me and me alone. Conrad’s Mother was very shy and very cautious of all human beings. I do not know about Conrad’s father as he was a feral cat that came to my farm.
Maggie is a very friendly and outgoing cat and the complete opposite of her sister. She loves to be held and petted by people she has gotten to know for some period of time.
Cali and Russ and very outgoing and can hardly wait for someone to come to the house to hold them and pet them. They both purr and purr away while they are being held and petted. Peter is shy beyond shy and likes to hide back of a board most of he day. Addi the Mother of Peter’s kittens is semi shy. Addi’s children Hilford, Mr. Gray and Sherlock do not want to be held or petted. Peter and Nicole are Conrad’s brother and sister. Conrad likes to be held and petted by me only.
I think it is part genetics in the fact that some cats like to be held and made a fuss over where other cats rather be left alone. In most cases the kittens act like their parents do around people. Some cats can come around and become completely tame with their human caregiver. Cat snacks and tuna canned in water can make a change in your cats personality for the better. Good food and extra love can sometimes make the feral cat extra tame over time and with lots of patience.
