Put a dab of canned cat food on the tip of one finger and hold it near the kitten, and let him lick the food off. With food on several fingertips, you can socialize more than one kitten at a time.
Hold a tablespoon of dry kitten food in the palm of your hand, and lower your hand near a hard-surfaced floor. Slowly open your hand and let the kitten kibble pieces drop, one at a time. The kittens will come running to play with the pieces of food. Flick pieces of the food towards kittens with your fingers.
Plastic bottle caps are popular toys with kittens, and if you put your finger in a lid to spin it on the floor, the kittens find its sight and sound truly irresistible. They will sit and watch, occasionally reaching out to pat the lid, as long as you’re willing to spin their toy.
