I really need some help. I have a gorgeous and very sociable male 2 year old red point! For company for him I bought a 4 month old tabby point kitten ( male) in November last year. We have had him now for nearly 3 months and he is still very very nervous. He loves my other cat but is frightened of humans! He will come and sit with us but if anyone stands up opens a door, comes near him his claws dig in and off he runs at 100 miles an hour. I have 3 children 11, 8 & 8 who love him dearly but if they are holding him and he gets spooked they are left coverd in scratches. He has never scratched deliberately just in his defence mode. We have never hurt him, and he likes to be cuddled until noise or movement around him. It has changed the dynamics in our house dramatically and I'm at the end of my tether really. What can I do to make things easier for him and for my family? I have rang the breeder and she will not take him back.
