Mitzy's introduction

I don't know if I did the right thing but now it's to late I got a cat named Mitzy. I like her. But she isn't as friendly as Jordie. She doesn't seen to understand I mean, her no harm. She's a 4.5 yr old calico. She came from a friend of mine who, including her, had six cats. They were looking for someone to take one. Forever. I agreed too take hey on a, month long trial basis. Butt if you know m at all , you'll know that I'll fall in liver and not wasn't to give her back. What I really need is some advice. She is terrified probably is. She's hiding under my bed. is there a way to get her to come out, without forcing get? I already tried that route. She sat with me for a few minutes. But was not real happy.

Looking, for love? Just look into the eyes, of your pets.

Just sit on the floor in the same room with her and talk softly so she gets used to your voice and your scent and starts to understand you don't mean her harm. She will hide for a while. She may need to be in a room separated from the dog for a while too. This is all new to her and she's just a little scared. You can try giving her some treats too, but I wouldn't try to grab her yet. This is pretty normal for them to act like this.

Talk to her real gently, feed her some yummy treats, those are always wonderful bribes. Just give her some time. She will come around. She is just scared right now, new place, new people.

I agree with spending some time in the room with her. You don't even need to focus on her- read a book or something- but just be in there with her so she can get used to you. Talking to her is also a good idea- you can read aloud or just talk to her about your day or what a pretty cat she is. I really believe talking to a nervous cat makes a difference in getting him/her to relax. Just give it some time and don't try to force her out if she's hiding- she just needs to get used to you and all the smells of her new home.

It sounds like she's got a great home with a loving owner and I'm sure she will be bothering you for attention all the time soon

Hi Erin,
I am so sorry about Jordie...
I know it will hurt for while...

I just want to say, I think it's wonderful that you took in an adult kitty!
Mitzy sounds like a kitty that needs patience and understanding to fully bloom
and I just can't think of a better person than you, to accomplish this!!!
I really like the name you choose, it's very cute!!
Hugs! Lots of them!

I'm sorry to hear that. Will you get any updates on her in the future?

Let us know how it's going with your new kitty. I hope she starts making you feel better over time.

I'm concerned that she ain't coming out to eat. Not even at night. So I put her food under the bed. I am at a friends house. Mitzy came with her name i am thinking of changing her name to match rascals. Any idea? Or should i just leave, it?
