As soon as a member opens the door, the cat walks right in. The feline looks happy to get scooped up for snuggles, grabs a seat at the table, then walks around for pets. The council tries to press on, but who can stay focused with an adorable cat walking around?

Tips For Raising An Outgoing Kitten
It may surprise you to learn that temperament starts to form before birth. Mama cats who suffer malnourishment can give birth to kittens with brain defects that cause fear or aggression.
It’s important for mother cats to have a healthy diet. But what if the kittens are already born? Here are some tips for helping kitties become more outgoing.
- Kittens need contact with their mothers for the first four weeks of life to develop proper social skills. However, bottle feeding a kitten can also help them feel comfortable around people if mom absolutely cannot take care of the kitten.
- Speaking of mama cats, kittens can pick up a fear of people from their moms. Make sure mom is comfortable so kittens don’t pick up timid tendencies.
- Socialize your kitten. Make sure they are handled by a variety of gentle, loving people early in life.
- Create positive experiences around new people. Give your cat a treat when the doorbell rings, and reward them for good behavior around newcomers. This will give them happy associations with people.
- Consider adopting an older, relaxed feline to show your kitten the ropes and help them learn to relax and be social.
