About a month ago, I adopted 5 month old twin brothers. They were found in a drainpipe when they were about 4 weeks old. They were bottlefed and practically handraised by their foster mom.
T.J. is such a social butterfly. He loves attention and loves to play with his siblings. We have 3 older females, aged 8, 2 and 18 months. He gets along beautifully with them, and even tolerates our puppies, 4 and 5 months old.
His twin Ollie on the otherhand is very unsocial. Whenever you walk by him, he hisses and runs away. He spooks really easy. Occasionally he will let you pet him.
Recently he let me pet him and even started purring and kneeding the cat tree.
Recently I saw their foster mom and asked her about Ollie, she seemed to be non-caring saying that he was always shy but was fine at her house.
The 5 cats have their own bedroom that is gated off from the puppies, and the children. Our kids are 12, 10 and 8, but I keep them out of the Cat-room.
I was wondering what I should or should not do to help my kitten become more social and be less scared of us. Our 2 y.o. is fine with us but still wary of strangers. I just want to be able to walk near him without him being frightened.
Any and All advice is welcome! Thanks again!
