He looks like like a young, fit, short hair. A little nervous eh? I have heard that it is best to put them in a small room, if possible, until they settle down a bit. Food, water, litter box, some pillows to lay on. We have only had our kitty 3 days and we let her have full run of the house immediately and then put her in a smaller room for a while. We saw her patrolling and marking everywhere and we saw that it was a little overwhelming for her, so we researched and then put her in the small room. She is just resting now instead of having to patrol and mark a large territory.

Yeah...he is a little nervous. He parked himself between the fridge and a wall. He'll look when you call his name, but he won't budge. I put his food and water in the area, but I need to go down there and place a blanket out for him. I hope he'll be okay down there .

He's acting perfectly normal for a new cat in the house. (I would put his litter box nearby, too.)

I love those soft colors, he looks like a lovely little kitty. You could spend a little time down there, sitting nearby, reading or something. He'll come out when he's ready.

I placed his litter box in the kitchen closer to the back door...his food & water is in the kitchen too, but closer to the dining room...I went down and put a soft quilt out for him near his butt by the fridge, but he just looks and meows. I just noticed how pretty his eyes are...they're almost a perfect match to his gray coat. Hope he'll be okay down there.

Some cats stay hidden for 24 hours or so.

You have to look at it from their point of view - he's in a strange place with a HUGE giant. He'll be okay.

Zoe is probably wondering if he'll be OK anywhere but the safe place he's parked his bottom! He'll learn soon that he is. Congratulations on your handsome fella!

With the two I adopted I just turned them loose and left them to it. As well, I opened all doors, including closets for them to explore. My understanding is that cats like to check things out to make sure there's nothing scary hiding anywhere. Zenobi (otb) took a couple of days, at least and apparently spent the night on my computer chair. The only thing I did was to keep a check on her, but not bother her. Missy did find herself a hiding place, but soon came out. They both were seniors when I adopted.
