Constant Yowling

The new foster won't stop crying. He sits in the computer room window (he's locked in this room until he comes around) and either meows frantically or goes out into full fledged yowls non stop. He's worked himself into such a fit today he's panting like he just ran 100miles and still won't stop. I've brought him into the living room and blocked him off in there with the other cats and he runs right to the back screen door and starts but does give himself breaks to go crawl under the chairs or couch. Is there anything I can do? None of my other fosters have acted like this for more than a few hours even the worst ones that would attack me any time I got near.

Gibson is 10 weeks old, he was trapped three days ago, spent one day at the vets and the past two days he's been with me. Besides being nervous he's very well behaved. I can pick him up, pet him etc without much fuss, usually just him dodging my hand for a few moments. Once he's in my arms he purrs and rubs his face all over mine. I locked Marshmallow in with him last night to see if that would help and no go. I've put a gate up at the door now so he's not so locked away and can see out and that hasn't helped. The only thing that seems to help is having him on my lap while stroking him but I can't do that every hour of the day.

I know its probably just alot for him to take in and he just needs time but I hate seeing him so worked up and wish there was something more I could do for him to help him calm down. He's asleep on my lap now after a short panic attack when he crawled between the window and the screen and refused to come out. I worried the screen would pop out of the window and he'd fall to the driveway and either get hurt or killed as the room is on the second floor.

Re: Constant Yowling

this is probably a bad idea:

maybe hold the kitty and walk outside just on the front porch and let him get a good sniff and look around and bring him back in to see if he gets better. if he gets worse, maybe hes needs a room with no windows? cause he craves the outdoors?

hope this helps.

i dont know too much about kittens but with my cats (4 months att and sometimes now) when azores meows and howls ill take her outside so she can get a good whiff and then take her back in, she runs off like it never happened and doesnt start up the howling until weeks even months later.
