I just adopted a cat today!

He is a 2 yr old fixed cat named "Bam".I am changing his name though.
I only got him about an hour ago and he is super stressed out.He is so stressed he lunged at me twice and bit me once (not hard though).Apparently he is not normally like that though.So I am going to leave him alone for abit and let him settle.I only have ONE picture of him at the moment and it is not the best,but this is him.

He might do best confined to a small room, like a bathroom, with food, water, a litter box, and a soft place to sleep. Keep him in there for 1-2 days and then let him out slowly to explore after that.

Congratulations on your new addition! He may be skittish now, but I'm sure he'll calm down really soon and be your constant companion. Best of luck with that, he really is a handsome boy

Thanks.He is really nervous still and for the most part he just hides right now.I emailed the woman last night and she told me he is a friendly and affectionate cat.So I now know he just needs time.

Once he is settled more I will get more pictures.But for now I am letting him do his thing and I just do my thing.

I am thinking of calling him Oreo...but it is a really common name,so I dunno yet.

Do what Hissy advises, and that's to sit on the floor in the room with him and read a newspaper or magazine out softly so he gets to know your voice. Lay a trail of treats down as well.

Do this as long as it takes and he'll come out eventually

He is a handsome boy! I love black and white kitties...would have adopted one if my 3 furbabies hadn't come along needing a home first! I look forward to hearing about "Bam" as he warms to you and becomes part of the family. I'm sure the work getting him settled will be well worth the love you receive in return!
