Kittens are normally pretty easy to bond with. However, if you’re not part of the family such as a pet sitter or friend of the family, a great way to bond with your friend’s kittens is by letting them lick baby food off of your fingers.
Just grab some Gerber baby food (in the video, the kittens loved Gerber’s Chicken with Chicken Gravy) and put a little on your finger. It’s possible that only one or two kitties in the litter may come to you to begin with, but it won’t be long before they all find their way to your finger during this special bonding time that they will come to enjoy. In fact, once they hear you open the jar, be prepared to be used as a human cat tree! Kittens are pretty smart, very fast, agile and love to eat!
Within a week or less, the kittens will no longer be hand-shy if they were to begin with. You’ll have a great group of kitties to have fun with the next time you decide to watch the bundles of fur for your friends.
