Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've been planning on getting a kitten for a couple of years - had a cat before, know how to look after 'em and everything. The correct financial time to get one has pretty much arrived. However, it turns out, I'm pretty sure there are now two extremely adorable stray kittens living under my house. I'm not sure how old they are, but not that young - probably won't be too long before they stop being obviously kittens rather than cats. I'm wondering how one would go about domesticating these little dudes or if it's even a good idea. Seems like going out and buying a cat and bringing it back here as I'd intended might result in some kind of cat conflict, which would be bad on top of trying to get the little guy used to a new environment.
My interactions with them so far have been mostly that when I walk into my back yard, unless I do it extremely quietly, they immediately stop lying in the sun being adorable and sprint into one of the holes in the side of my house (there's like a foot of space between the floors and the ground). They are extremely scaredy cats. Closest I've got to actual interaction is making friendly noises that made them stop mid-sprint, sit down and look at me suspiciously for a few minutes before sauntering over to the hole. My housemates have been leaving bowls of cat food and water out, and they consume it, but run off if anyone interrupts.
Anyone got any experience of situations like this? I'd love to make pets of these guys if I could but I dunno how old is too old, if that's a thing, or how to do it.
