I just got my kitten yesterday. so wil give you some back ground on her.. The lady i got her from bottle fed her and had health problems so she needed to find a home for the kitten,, I wanted one so we matched up. The lady only lives down the hall from me, Anyhow. I went to the ladies apt. and i thught made friends with the kitten, whose name is Missy.. and i carried all her things down to my apt. and then later the lady brought Missy down to my place.. she satayed in the ladies lap. till she left and then Missy hid under the pilows on the couch,, she stayed there for a couple hours. i sat on the floor and talked and petted,, after a couple hours i picked her up and held her.. for another hour or so. i was in a recliner so when i got up i jsut put her on the seat of the recliner. when i came back to my chair she was gone, after long searching my husband found her behid my china closet.. in a space only inches wide,, well i finally lured her out with a string. and held her again, when i let her down again, she went uner the recliner.. to make a long story shorter.. i sat in the chair and played with her with my fingers.. and even got on the floor with her, but when i would try to pick her up she went under the chair again.. So i put her sleeping basket that the lady gave me, by the chair and went to bed. this morning i couldnt find her again, she changed chairs. went to under my husbamds recliner.. i finally got her out of there and took her to her litter box(i had taken her there earlier and alos to her food, she ate a bout a spoonful and drank some water) she then ran out of the laundry room and into the kitchen and ran under a cabinet next to the dishwasher in a space only inches wide, there is a little space in the top where she could get out if she wants to i think,, but i need help.. please someone help me figure out what to do,, will she ever adjust. should i take her back to the lady. or next time she comes out put her in the laundry room where her food water and litter box are and shut the odor. or should i do what my husband says and just leave her alone and let her come out on her own.. I dont know what to do We are senior's in our late 60's and i am so afraid she hates me .. please help..
