My husband and I just recently adopted a 1 1/2 year old spayed female. We have a 5 year old female who really doesn't mind her presence, but Lizzie (the new cat)is terrified of everyone. When we first arrived home, we placed Rachel (our 5 year old cat) in our bedroom and opened up lizzie's carrier in the bathroom with the litter pan. Lizzie has yet to leave the bathroom and has been in the bathtub for about 8 hours. She growls and hisses every time we even go near the bathroom door. Again, Rachel seems to have no problem and it's pretty much business as usual for her. What can be done to email Lizzie's transition and make her less fearful and feeling less threatened?
