Man found these kittens hiding under a walkway. They're all grown now and you have to see them

When my own kids were small, my youngest daughter could tame the wildest feral cat. We had quite a few furry felines that joined our family that way. Seems that Reddit used TDX has a similar talent, having taken two ginger brothers from the wild and made them into wonderful companions.
That's not to say it was easy. Even at five weeks, which these kittens were, their teeth and claws can still draw a lot of blood and leave you with lacerations in places you didn't know you had. However, TDX volunteers for Cat Cuddle Cafe Brisbane, a rescue group in Brisbane, Australia, so he gets plenty of practice.

The young kittens were found under a raised walkway, frightened and alone. When our guy TDX saw them, he knew just what to do. He and his friends from CCCB set traps to catch the little critters, and then he took them home with him.
It seems that Cat Cuddle Cafe Brisbane is well-named because their main method of cat taming is "forced cuddling." (Exactly the same method my daughter used to employ.) Half an afternoon of this "therapy" had them purring for more, and our guy was happy to give it.
"If they're real scaredy-cats, then get them in your lap and keep them there for long cuddle sessions, and do this several times a day at first. Eventually, they realize that cuddles aren't such a bad thing," he said. After they calmed down, he gave them the names Hunter and Zissou.
It wasn't long before the orange cats were taking snoozes alongside their human dad. However much they grew to love him, though, they preferred each other's company over anyone else's.
Now that a year has passed, the two scrawny kittens have evolved into two gorgeous cats that are a delight to their owner. In fact, he was so pleased with the success of having the brothers live with him that he did something rash.
"The little guy (Jasper) at the back I trapped at a local cafe. He was very wild when I brought him home, but he has slowly become accustomed to house cat life over time - now he's the household's head bump champion!" says TDX.
Since they've come to live with their human, they've grown up a mite. And, as cats, do, they'll sleep anywhere (even if they don't fit). Reminds me of a poem I read:
Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open drawer, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere. ~ Eleanor Farjeon (1881 - 1965)
