This is the story of how I got my youngest cat, Murre:

While visiting a farm I noticed a furball by the side of the road. I jumped it and managed to capture this adorable little feral kitten! =D
He hissed and bit, but as soon as you hold them close to your body they calm down, and stay calm for as long as you hold them close.
The farmer came over to me and told me not to let it go again, for the mother cat had a broken leg and he was planing on shooting her O_o
These cats are completely feral, though they belong to the farm. I once captured one of the adults by chance; it got so frightened it peed... =P

So I brought him home with me, told my mum I would put him up on, a buy and sell type webpage which has a good pet section.
But... though he was a true feral kitten, hissed and puffed himself up, I barely had time to capture it! I photographed him and filmed him (Films here:… ) but as you can see in this clip:… thats only the second time I put him down!! And he ran straight back to me!! :love:
These few photos of him hissing is the first time I put him down, and the only time he had the reaction. =^_^=

The first night I put him in a soft basket and had it in my bed so I could keep him close and had a hand on him for comfort. The next morning I woke up with him cuddled up to me, close to my face! <3
I just couldn't give him up, as I had fallen completely in love with him! He is the kindest most tolerant cat I've ever seen. He ran up to my two cats without any fear, wanting to be with them. They did not approve =P
I made sure they didn't hurt him =^_^=
Even as he grew up he continued doing this, run over to other cats he didn't know and try to play with them. He reminds me a lot of a dog! He slobs like a dog, you can't have a staring competition with him, he doesn't understand the cat language, and he even chews on shoes O_o
The last photos are of his first bath. He was so riddled with flees you could see them crawl all over his face (this is when he is nice and dry, with out putting anything on it or even touching) Luckilly he wasn't afraid of water (even jumped in to a swimming pool several times:… )

We guessed him to be about 6 weeks old or more. Possibly as much as 8. Since he slobbers, a condition often seen in cats that were removed from their mother much too soon, he was most likely 6 as we first guessed. This is hardly ever seen in kittens removed at 8 weeks or older. I would normally not remove a kitten from it's mum before 12 weeks of age, but this was a special case.

Oh, I see. He was feral. Never mind. :)

Hehe, jupp, very much so! In this image he shows just how tame he was not ;)
This was taken the first time I put him down after catching him =)
Now he's a cuddly cat though, purring in my lap as I type =^_^=

Haha, LOL XD, he's adorable!

Sorry, but that cat isn't feral. It should probably be in domestic.

Aww, he is such a cutie, you did very well! :heart:

I got from a Pet Shop (there is no shelters here) my little female Coquine. She was barely 8 weeks old and the Shop's vet had already neutered her one week before. She is doing good and receive so much love but there is always a kind of anxiety in her eyes. But she is happy with me and my other cats...

Where I come from, Norway, cats and dogs are illegal to be sold in pet shops. They have decided it goes against the animals needs, being stuck in small caged while waiting to be sold. They are all sold or given away from private homes. And the closest thing we have to a shelter near me is a private owned one, and the cats are never held n cages there either. They are all spayed and neutered and left to roam in big indoor/outdoors enclosures in assigned groups (the seniors have their own house). But as far as I know they don't let people adopt from them very often.. It's run by a special lady who hates humans =P
