Tips for Socializing a Shy or Timid Cat - From One of Our Experienced Foster Homes!

In the first few days, keep your new cat in a small, private room so she can gradually get used to her new home in stages (if you don’t have another separate room the bathroom would be fine). Keep any siblings in there with her for the first day or two to help her adjust. Keep her carrier in the room with a blanket in it, she will probably spend most of the first day or two in there, she loves small, safe spaces. The more adventurous sibling will want to come out and explore the rest of his new home soon, let him, but let him go back in with the shy cat's room regularly so they can play, etc.

While  Shy Miss is in her own room, routinely visit her, for example, visit her about 10 times a day for about 20 minute intervals and sit beside her and talk to her. In the beginning, it is best to visit her one person at a time, so she can bond with each person individually and so as not to overwhelm her. Reach into the carrier, or wherever she is hanging out, and let her smell you, offer her pets, words of encouragement, toys and treats. At first she will likely be stiff and unresponsive to pets out of fear, but as long as she does not run away, continue to pet her, scratch behind her ears and under her chin and she will soon be purring and rolling over onto her side, wanting more! After 1-2 weeks of doing all this she may start to greet you at the door and flop onto her side for pets when you enter the room. This is a good point to let her out of her room, but keep her room door open so when she feels scared she can retreat to a safe place.

When you let her out to explore the rest of her new home, don’t be discouraged if she runs from you when you approach her in the beginning. Wait until she has settled and laying down to approach her and carry on with talk, pets, treats, and play.

The most important thing is to actively, routinely engage her with talk, play, treats and pets, otherwise she will isolate herself.

But what a reward when she first jumps on your lap of her own accord!
