While most foster kitten raisers focus on keeping the kittens medically healthy, It is also very important to socialize them well. This is what will keep them in life long loving homes. We want them to be outgoing, friendly, and social with many different people and in many different environments. You may have kittens that exhibit signs of being fearful or feral, but with the right strategies and techniques, they can be socialized into happy, loving, well-adjusted pets. I will be detailing techniques and methods aimed at transitioning these kittens into living comfortably in a home. While these techniques may be geared towards helping recently-outdoor kittens, these strategies can also be used to work with other fearful felines.


Key Learning Objectives

  • What is socialization and why it’s important
  • Goals of socialization
  • Understand the potential consequences of force-based techniques
  • Learn techniques to help kittens go from hissing to purring
  • How to understand your kittens body language
