I wonder if there is anyone have any advice for me to get some progress on a cat.
We are foster home for a cat protection center, and taking in the stray cats that need to be tamed before they can be adopted. Now we have an adult cat who is very afraid. She has been here for almost a month, and she shows little progress. In the beginning we had her in the bathroom,where she was consistently on a shelf. After a while I touch her gently on the tail with one finger,but once I try something more then she becomes aggressive and attack. Now we have moved her into a bedroom that is located next door to the the living room so she will have to get used to the sounds in the house. She both eat well and go to the litterbox, and she does not look sick. I have 3 cats that I adopted after I tamed them. I've tried to put 2 of them in the room whit this cat. One of them hissed quite gently to her and calmly walked out of the room again. The other is actually the son of this cat. (it's the little white one in my avatar) He walked right up to her to lay down beside her. But then she became aggressive towards humans again. she wanted to protect her son. The son came in to this house at the same time as his mother, and he is 98% tame now. And the fact that she was aggravated by the fact that her son came in was very sad, so we're not going to let him go to her again until she is ready to enter the livingroom with the others. Now she lies only in one corner under the couch, and just at that spot she has been in almost two weeks now. I've tried to sit in the room to let her get to know me. I also left my clothes in there so she has the change to know my smell. None of it has led to much progress .. I also have allsow been doing some singing for her and then she has become calmer, but as soon as I move she is scared again ..
Does anyone have any advice to some methods I can try to help her to not be so afraid? Should I let one of my bigger cats come in to her more often?
In advance thank you!
