I just got a Siamese female on Monday this week. Since she's been here, she's been hiding constantly. If I don't put her food and water where she is, she won't eat or drink. Since she's been here she has been hiding behind the toilet in my bathroom...this afternoon she started hiding in her litter box, which has a cover on it. I've been bringing her out and holding her as much as possible, and she was okay with that, however, today when I attempted to bring her out (twice), she jumped off my lap and ran back to hide in her litter box.
I have another cat...about 10 months...the new cat is about a year old, and the other cat (male) seems to literally love her, though she won't let him close to her. Mostly, he lays about 4 ft from where she is, not threatening her in any way. Her previous owner said she scares easy. There are no children, or other family members, just me and my other cat. What can I do to get her to come out?
I've done all I know to do, which is to hold her a lot. I don't know why she is withdrawing from me. She just started that today, and all I've done is hold and pet her and talk softly to her.
Really need help. I don't know what else to do.
