    Hi everyone, I would really appreciate some advice. We recently adopted a 9 week old kitten. She’s very timid and is scared of everything, she’s now allowing us to stroke her but only if she is sat on our bed or in her bed. The main issue is she is constantly crying. We feed her little and often as advised by the vet, she has kitten milk and we clean her litter tray after she has been. She won’t allow us to pick her up and comfort her so we’re struggling for solutions. She has been wormed and de flead! Any advice would be brilliant. I’ve ordered a feliway in the hopes of making her less anxious. She’s gorgeous and I’m just worried she is distressed. Thanks 🙂

    She is missing where she came from…if she had a mama and siblings, or a shelter, or an individual–whatever it was, she misses it. Eventually, she will forget or learn to live with the loss of it. You are doing everything right. Shower her with affection and love, cuddles and pets, chin scritches, wand toys and kicker toys, cat trees and beds, food and warmth. She will figure out that you are her people and she is queen of her domain. Remember she is only 9 weeks old. Weaning usually takes place between 8 to 10 weeks so she is just a baby. Babies cry. Some cats do not like to be picked up, rather they climb into your lap for pets and then jump down when they are done.

    Another idea is to get her a soft, squishy toy and put your scent on it. Often kits will snuggle with it for comfort and not feel so lonely.

    Thanks for the advice, I’ve left a t-shirt of mine with my scent on in her basket today in the hopes of her becoming more familiar, she has started approaching us more this morning but still runs away if we get too close but it’s progress. I’m going to go and get her a kicker toy today to give her a bit more stimulation. Thanks again for the advice, it’s good to get other people’s ideas and perspectives 🙂
