New Siamese cat very nervous...help!
We have just adopted a 5 year old spayed female chocolate point Siamese. She has only been with us three days but she is the most nervous cat we've ever encountered, and we've kept rescue cats for decades. She has found every hiding place in the house...currently she's in the coat closet....and will only come out to eat or use the litter box at night.
This morning she allowed me to gently stroke her while she was in the closet, but she wasn't too thrilled about it.
We have "Feeliway" diffusing throughout the house, which the vet recommended to reduce her anxiety.
I know this process might take a while, but I'd welcome any advice from experienced Siamese owners. We've had a Siamese cross before but this is our first pure bred.
No picture currently as we've had no opportunity to take one!!
