I just got a new kitten that just turned 12 weeks on Christmas and he is very shy. He seems to only want to hide in our couch. He also seems as though he might have been mistreated by the previous owners husband because he seems to be scared of me but not quite as scared of my wife and my daughter. But with me he runs if I walk by him and talk to him but if I just walk by him he doesn't seem to run right away. Also he is very leery of me reaching down to pick him up. I would like to get him ultimately to not get inside our couches and chairs and I don't want him to start scratching inside the furniture and ruining it. Anything I can do there and also anything other than possibly just giving him time to get him to feel more safe with all of us? Thanks.
