Yesterday I adopted a 5 month old orange and white tabby from a pet rescue shelter. The cat was abandoned approximately 2 month ago near a lumberyard. The lumberyard fed the kitty until the pet rescue unit picked up the cat. The cat has been altered and has one round of shots. I brought the kitty home last night and he was very affectionate in my lap, but the moment I put him on the ground he freaked out running all over the house and eventually hiding behind my TV cabinet. I let him rest there during the night and this morning I again held him in my lap and listened to him purr. However, once I put him on the ground the same habit of running behind the TV cabinet happens. The kitty is also not eating or drinking water. Any advice on how to warm him up to my place. Thanks.
