OK, joined here to hopefully get some answers. My cat Boomer is maybe 5/6. I had the pleasure of adopting him when he was 2. He's a handful though. My Himalayan Lynx buddy is afraid of everything and I'm at my wits end. This has been going on since I first brought him in my house. Is he friendly and open to me? Yes. Does that make up for him being stuck in 1 room all day and when he comes downstairs to eat his temperament completely changes? Hardly. I know I should have tried to fix the problem from the start but I didn't. Is this a hopeless cause? When he wants attention he meows and meows for me in his "special" room but when I try to bring him downstairs to where I am he just runs back upstairs. Now he's made a lot of progress, it took him about a year to fully trust me, but it's still disheartening that he feels the need to stay in this room and is afraid of so much including strangers.
