A cat had given birth to two kittens in our house. I used to keep milk in a bowl for them to drink. Some days later the mother cat and one kitten went away somewhere, but one kitten remained outside our house. It stays out at the back of our house.
I still keep milk in a bowl for it to drink and also occasionally give it meat. It's been around a month but still the kitten runs away every time I try to hold her or pet her. Even if I keep the milk in the bowl it only comes to drink when I move a little distance away. If I keep the minced meat in my hand it doesn't eat, if I keep it near me also it doesn't eat, but if I throw it a little distance, it picks it up and eats.
Why is it that the kitten hasn't become friendly yet even when I have been giving it food for more than a month?
Why is it still scared to come near me?
What can I do to gain its trust and get it to play with me?
