I own a cat named Kabuki (one of 4) who behaves very differently than the others. Since she was a kitten (she is about a year and a half old now), she has been shy, skittish, nervous, and downright frightened at times. She hides when I have visitors, while the other cats are very social. She wont even let me approach her, she runs from me, although she does allow me to pet her ON HER TERMS when she approaches me. She does play with the other cats but she is very easily spooked. I am starting to worry about her, because her fear seems to be getting worse. I have had her and her brother since they were very little and he is not like her. I love her very much but I fear that she is not living the life she could be because of her fear. Is there anything I can do to bring her out of her shell? Could she have a medical condition?
