I just got a cat from the shelter last weekend. he was really shy at the shelter - he had made a tent out of the paper liner of his cage and was hiding. At first I thought he had maybe been abused, but he doesn't flinch or shy away when you try to touch him. He has been in the same spot on the floor of my closet for almost a week. He comes out to use his litter box (I leave it about 5 ft from his hiding spot in the closet). He had been eating a lot (I didn't really know how much a cat was supposed to eat at first) and now I am giving him less food but he always eats the whole bowl. He had a vet check-up before he left the shelter... but is it possible the cat is really sick or something?
