scared russian blue

Why is my Russian Blue so scared? He doesn't eat, drink or even come out to play with the other cats, we recently moved, the other 2 cats are doing fine and are adapting to the new house nicely.

Some cats react badly to change and these cats need more tlc and time to be allowed to calm down and to find their feet in their new home.

if I were you i would keep this one cat in a separate room for a few days with his toys and bed etc to allow him time to calm down and then you can slowly let him discover the rest of the house for himself.

try not to push him too much sometimes just standing back and letting the cat do things when they want to is the best option.

Also you could try him with some extra special smelly cat food to entice him to eat and to pamper him a little.

I'm sure he will settle down soon

best wishes KAte
