What advice do you have for a caring family, who just adopted a new cat (6 months)? What will make this cat, Sammy, most comfortable as he is getting used to his new house? He's been under the futon for the last two days.
It is not unusual for a pet to hide when you initially bring him home. I would not "force" the cat out from under the bed. Your cat needs time to learn how to trust his new family. Trying placing cat food around the bed and every day move the food closer to its permanent home. Try to provide a few toys for the new cat. You should also try giving your new pet kitty treats. Do not chase after your cat instead allow your new pet to come to you. vetcare
