  • Hi Sissy,

    Being introduced into a new home for a cat (kitten or adult) can be an adjustment for both cat and owner. It just requires abit of time. And some cats take abit longer then others. The breed of Siamese are known to be abit skittish but once you have earned his trust - he will return this love and loyalty to you. As long as he is eating fine, using his litter box correctly and there are no other unusual behaviours then the hiding for now is fairly normal. Try enticing him to come out from hiding by using a wand toy for some playtime therapy. One-on-one playtime interaction is an excellent why to earn his trust and create a bond between the two of you. Lots of gentle verbal praise can help ease his anxiety as well.
