New Adopted Kitten still hiding
Hi, I adopted my first kitten (he's 5months, 3 weeks) and at the shelter he was obviously shy of new people, but warmed up and allowed me to cuddle him. They said he was not socialised properly and was semi-feral,when he came in to the shelter. I took him home Thursday (5 days ago) and he's been hiding under our couch during the day. With time and patience, he is easily coaxed out and loves playing, exploring and cuddles (he drools when he's super happy). But he seems to retreat under the couch all the time, especially during the day. He will be playing, then if I stop interacting with him, he'll disappear under again. He is eating, using his litter box and exploring at night. Do I just keep being patient with him, and trust he'll stop hiding under the couch?
