Most of my barn kitties are very friendly. I have one that's really flighty, so I caught him and brought him into the house to give him some canned catfood. That way he could associate people with good stuff (worked beautifully on his siblings). I put him on the counter and reached for the can of food and he started freaking, poor thing was terrified! I let go before either of us got hurt (I was afraid he would bite me) and he took off running. Now he is... ummm... somewhere in my house, hiding. Not my plan! Now I have to catch this spastic kitten, and since I think the experience was traumatic for him, I'll probably need to keep him in until he settles down or the only thing he will have learned is that the house is scarey. Note to self... take them to a small room before putting them down!
