We have a visitor

The last couple of days we have been visited by a tiny, fuzzy, black kitten.  It can’t be more than five or six weeks old.  It sneaks up and eats from Maytag and the gang’s bowl.  When it sees a human, it runs across the front yard, through the fence, and vanishes into the woods behind our neighbor’s house.  I am going to borrow a live trap from a friend and see if we can catch the little guy.  Hopefully we can tame it.  I’ll keep y’all posted, and try to get some decent pictures.

UPDATE:

We set the trap tonight and within 3 hours we had our kitty.  It was not very happy to be captured.  We transferred it (while getting ourselves a little bit bloody) to a big pet carrier and now its resting comfortably and hopefully calming down.

Anyone got any advice for taming feral kittens?  I believe this one is young enough to tame, but that might just be wishful thinking.
