I have just aquired a kitten from a resucer who had about 10 kittens in the house, along with this 10 week old female. I noticed that these cats didn't want human contact and seemed very timid and scared, but the lady assured us that it was because I was a stranger in the house. This calico female seemed very playful and promising, so I took that one. Once at my home this cat seems very afraid of people, will run away, and seems to what looks like shake in fear when you try and approach it or hold it. I read somewhere that if a cat doesn't have human contact within the first 8 weeks of life, it is extremely difficult to "warm up" to humans after that. First off is that true, and second does that seem to be whats going on here? Any suggestions?
