Curiosity killed the cat. Use this to your advantage. (NOT the killing of the car part!)
First, just sit down in plane sight of the cat, let it get used to you. Keep it's attention by moving your fingers slowly by the ground. When it is comfortable with you around, use string. Most cats live string. Toss it out to the side, not at the cat, and twitch it a little. This will take some time, but the cat should focus on the end of the string. Finally, pull the string slowly towards you, and have food ready.
Or you could just stone the kitten with a lifetime supply of Kitty-Weed (Catnip). <img src="graemlins/smokin.gif" border="0" alt="[Chilling]" />
1) Braunschweiger is better than cat food.
2) Pick up the cat by it's built-in handle. The scruff on the back of the neck. (No, not the tail. I'm not that mean.)
