He/she's in the house. 8 weeks max, I think. I'll let the vet decide.

That's the way. You've won him over. Soon he'll let you hold him and then into the house. How old would you guess? Maybe 4 months?

I picked him up and he sat on my lap for a while this AM, then hopped down to do some exploring. I hope that I can do this the gentle way, but before gets hurt out in the big, wide world.

I agree with what everybody else has said, just keep on trying and go
slow. The yarn with the feather thing works like a charm. ALL of my cats
go nuts with those feather toys.

Well, I blew it last night. I thought I was faster that I am. Got him into
the crate but he escaped before I could get my hand out and close the
door. :-( This morning he's shying away from me.

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.
