Yesterday I got a brother sister pair of 5 ish month old kittens. They weren't abused but undersocialized. Max is doing good-coming out of cage willingly for his loving and all...His sister maggie is freaked out of ehr mind still-will purr but not interested in anything going on. They came from a guy who had approx 15 cats/kittens when they were younger. She is sorta small so thinking she was the submissive cat. I have been going along the line of treating her like I did my feral. I have been sitting down and just petting her in cage-she purrs but won't relax(feel her body and very tense)-she has yet to eat(licked some nutrical off finger tho) I have her in a 2x3x3 ish cage(seperate from her brother) she just stares and trys to blend in and not be noticed...Any one have exp with this sort of situation or am I doing right thing? should I leave her alone more or try to interact more(is getting spayed thursday am so i hope i am not hurting her more then i am helping-but has to go in case shes pregnant) Thanks for anything you can give me-normally ok with ferals and new cats but shes very different then anything i have dealt with.
