Siamese/DSH Mix kitten shy. How to socialize?
We just recued a cute little siamese mix kitten from a shelter. He is 12 weeks old and a real sweetheart, but still a little bit shy and I was told at the shelter that he will need more affection and attention at the beginning but unfortunately I wasn't told how to help him.
When we arrived at our plac ehe was still asking for his mom and I hold him on my lap wher he was hiding in a little towel. He did sleep the night ok and I can pet him and he starts even purring. He didn't eat today and just wanted to drink some water. Should I be worried about his eating behaviours? When I gave him some treats he ate them with a big appetite from my hand, but then when I showed him the bowl with his wet and dry food he was not really interested.
When I put him in the litter box he did ok and I think he understood what it means, so I think I will continue for the next few days to put him into the litter box evnthough at the shelter he apparently did well with going to the litterbox.
I know I must semm very worried, but this is my first kitten and I want to do the best for him.
I will be very thankfull for your response.
