My Two New Kittens...NEED ADVICE
I have two adorable 8 wk old kittens that I picked up yesterday from a neigbhor whose cat had kittens. The pair of them are so sweet and so fun to watch and care for, but they do most of their interaction only with each other. They will play with the family if a toy is introduced, but otherwise prefer to stand back and watch. I'm sure they are still getting to know us and their new home, but just wondered, generally, how long it will be before they will interact with us and not dart off so much when we come around. I had 4 cats many years ago and two were warm and friendly and two were very standoffish and never wanted to be in the company of people. I'm so concerned that my two little ones will have personalities similar to the latter. Any thoughts?
Also, the male kitten is pooping on the carpet. I cleaned the area thoroughly, covered it with foil (recommendation I found online) and showed him where the litter box is. I'm sure he is stressed out so we're taking it slow, but could use advice on this as well.
Thanks in advance!
