Re: Kitten

Daryl, believe I have been thru all the permutations of this conundrum! You have to be ready mentally to move surely and swiftly yourself with your technique and route planned and everything ready. Any hesitation will doom the attempt and make it a little harder the next time. The kitten will try everything to get loose and will get wilder and wilder till deposited wherever it is going. You may get scratched. If you think you can be nimble with your hands with gloves, use them, I do not. If using a towel I would simultaneously drape it over its back and pick it up with two hands while trying to wrap it into a manageable package (partially controlling its feet this way) to take to where its going. Good luck! Just remember this is for the kitten's own good and you are bigger! I have to keep reminding myself of this as I find it very hard to force a little kitten to do something it so much does not want to do.

How? I'm sure he'd freak if I put it over him. Or do you mean wrap my arms in a towel so that the claws can't cut through? The little guy has tiny, needle sharp teeth and toenails.

Use a towel.

I don't even know how to pick it up without being clawed to death. I
normally cradle a dog with my forearm between its front legs and the
hindquarters tucked in the crook of my other arm. Somehow I think that
leave me looking like a Venetian Blind.

We've got a small crate ready. The big crate is still outside since we
have a lot of space.
