Hello, I am new and am probably dong this all wrong - but I am a rather anxious new owner of a 13 week old abyssinian male who has not been handled much by the breeder. I have had him for 3 days and I am wondering how long it will take to socialize him, and if 13 weeks is too old to get socialized (as you can see I am pretty ignorant!) I am keeping him in our bedroom but he is very skittish and hids under beds if anyone comes into the room - he has to be cought if we want to stroke him - but he does purr like a tractor almost immediately! Can anyone give me some advice?
abymum, go to the cat lounge and post your questions there. You'll get a lot more responses there. 13 weeks is not to late to socialize a kitten but, again, introduce yourself at the lounge and you'll get many responses.
