How To Comfort A Stray Kitten?

My cat will not come in the house to eat. He won’t even look at food when I put it out for him. How can I get him to be more interested? My cat will not come in the house to eat. He won’t even look at food when I put it out for him. How can I get him to be more interested?

How do you stop a kitten from rubbing his cheek against your fingers and doing all sorts of cute and funny things like that? My adopted kitten is quite affectionate but he rubs his cheeks, chin etc on my arm or hand as if he wants attention there. What should I do about this? One of my cats loves me so much she tries everything she thinks might make me happy (which isn’t often!) She always seems very pleased with herself though – especially after her little ‘trick’! When we go away – which is often – how can we keep her entertained and occupied during our stay without having an over-excited acrobat running around the room all day long?! Also, does anyone know why some cats love playing with string/balls/other toys while others don’t seem bothered by them at all – or am just being too hard on myself here?! Many thanks!!
