We set up the trap and waited all day for the little kitten to go inside the trap, but instead the kitten laid down in a cube that was on my fiends porch. We tried to trap it inside the cube by putting a board in front of the opening but the kitten leaped from the cube and ran into the woods. None of us saw the kitten and presumed that it had perished.
This abandoned Aegean cat was suffering from anxiety and she was meowing loudly and was stressed. At dusk the kitten came down from the tree and ate the entire bowl of food. I was unable to get close to the kitten as it was afraid of me and ran back into the woods.
Ten minutes later the kitten approached me. I did not look directly at the kitten, I lowed my eyes so the kitten would not be threatened. I waited for the kitten to make the first move.
The kitten rubbed on my back, and then came to my side and climbed through my arm to sit in front of me. That was it; the kitten trusted me and knew I would not harm it. I sat down on the ground and the kitten climbed onto my lab. I then spoke softly to the kitten and petted the kitten lovingly. I allowed the kitten to tell me everything and all the while I petted the little Aegean kitten.
Note: It is not a good idea to abandon a cat at the side of the road. If you cannot keep your cat then you must take the steps to find the cat a new home or to surrender them to a no kill shelter.
