Stormy wormie doesn't like strange cats. We are going a bit north for a few days during Christmas and the kitties will be staying at the kennel. Since I work there, I have the advantage of taking the cats up there to get them used to the new environment.
Yesterday, I hung out in the cat room with wormie, opened her kennel, read to her, and gave some wet food. She warmed up enough to stop hiding under her blankie, began eating wet food. However, she was growling and hissing. I'm very proud of her for making so much progress but it upsets me to see her so stressed.
If anyone knows of some really useful books or webpages on cats and their psycology it would be much appreciated!y
