Shelter Kitty Adjusting to Home Life
My SO and I adopted an approx. 10mo Bengal mix kitten from our animal shelter on Monday. He was a stray who had only been in the shelter for about a week. He is a little underweight but is very friendly and cuddly.
How long should it take him to adjust? He spends most of his time hiding under the bed or in his crate. He will come out to socialize a little and to eat/use his litter box, but then runs right back to his "hiding" spots. How long will this last? When should we begin encouraging him to come out more?
This is my first cat. I've had plenty of dogs but no kitties.
