So my bf and I picked out the kitty we want! We bring her home from getting her spayed TOMORROW so pics will be up soon
I just had a couple bringing-home questions. I have noticed that the kitty is quite nervous and timid sometimes at the shelter, a couple of times trying to hide. She's fine when noise is at a minimum, and I think it may have been that I woke her up to pet her at the shelter today. The people said that she was brought in with another kitty and the day after being brought in they had kittens. They also said when she first arrived she was very standoffish and wouldn't or didn't care for interaction with people. She's obviously a lot better now, but I want to make sure she isn't nervous around us and associates people with love, attention, and goodies.
She's coming tomorrow after getting spayed, and I'm a bit worried about how that will affect her first few days here. I was reading that you should let them only roam around in a small room for a few days and then slowly let them explore more. We were thinking about putting her in the bathroom, because although it is the only bathroom we have (so people will be coming in and out) it has the least risk of her hurting herself. It is also not too stimulating, and hopefully not too scary.
Ok, anyone have any advice on how long we should keep her in there? Like, weeks? or days? or just any advice on that stage would be helpful.
Also, any advice on gaining trust with her? I'm nervous because she's a bit skittish, and on top of that she will be recovering from this surgery.
PLEASE HELP!! Any advice ASAP would be wonderful, as we are picking her up sometime after 3 tomorrow. Thanks!!!
