I have a 8 month old kitten who was acting like a normal kitten until yesterday. I was knitting and the yarn I was using scared her, We tried to show her that it was not a harmful thing but that only made it worse. Right now she is afraid of everthing, she tries to investigate common objects in the house by streaching herself out so much, so that she is not near the item, then she will back up real slow until a comfortable distace for her and she turns and runs. She will not play and I can get her to "trust an object (like a pair of gloves) and 15 minutes later she is afraid of it again and we start all over. It is like she has panic attacks.I should say that this kitten came to us when she was about 6 weeks old, through the woods by herself, a true wild cat that we caught and brought into the home. Does anyone have any ideas how to help this panicing kitten?
