I have an 8 week old male kitten that I have had almost two weeks. He loves to take naps in my lap, which he actually goes limp and is deep alseep when he does. He isn't that shy it seems to me, he comes when I call him and likes to be petted and picked up. Though I have only heard him purr two nights ago. I was giving him a treat and was petting him as he ate it and he purred for the first time. I have tried giving treats again but no purring. His sister purrs all the time when she sees me and likes to lick me and rub her face on me, though he has never done this. I thought maybe he was just one of those cats that never purr but since he has purred I wonder if he is just shy? Also would it be better to seperate the kittens for a few nights to let them bond with me seperately? Right now they sleep together, eat together, play together and the male might not feel like he has to bond to close to me since his sister is there. Just a thought.
