Vix's Kitten Taming Diary
Taming a stray kitten is acclimatising them and socialising them to humans so they can become wonderful companions. The process, which requires the utmost patience and care, can prove to be extremely rewarding.
PetRescue’s Co-Founder Vix Davy, wears many hats, and it turns out kitten vlogger is also one of them!
Vix, a Delta-certified canine behavioural trainer (and novice kitten tamer), took in a hissy stray found in a warehouse. She documented the journey of settling in the kitten with the help of her daughter, Lexie. In just ten days, the kitten went from a lost little ball of fur, to a playful confident little lion!
Before you watch, you should note that the following videos probably contain more cuteness than your heart can take, and instantly make you want to adopt a kitty…
"We quickly realised that we needed the kitten to be in a much more confined space than a bedroom. Re-catching him involved oven mitts and a very hissy, spitty scared kitten."
