Scaredy cat

by Jennifer

I just got a 4 month old kitten about 10 days ago. She is a bit timid and spends the majority of her time hiding under the sofa or the bed. Any suggestions to help her gain some bravery?

Answer by Kate
Hi I wouldn't worry too much as it can take some time for some cats to settle into a new home. It also depends on her individual personality and how she copes with change etc.

Please read my pages about scared or nervous cat and also one about how to bond with a new cat which will help to build her confidence.
here are the links to these pages.

Best wishes kate
