Meet Jambi! He's an approximately 9 week old kitten born of a mixed litter of other similar looking kittens and a few Siamese. A friend of mine rescued his mother from the wild just a few weeks after these kittens were born. Obviously, we decided to adopt one of our own. We have thought about getting a kitten for a while now and this seemed like as good an opportunity as any. We love him to death, but there is one small problem. He is extremely shy and afraid. You can't get near him no matter how slow, careful, and nonthreatening you act. It's only been about 72 hours since we brought him home, and I don't want to miss the chance to do everything I can to help him come out of his shell while he's still very young. If you can manage to catch him, he will purr intensely while you pet him, but as soon as you stop, he runs off and you can't find him anywhere. He doesn't seem playful in his hiding, but fearful, which worries me. The first night, we placed him in our bed between us and he went right to sleep (waking up sometime during the night to poo on the dining room floor) and was with us again when we woke up. The second night he came to bed without us having to bring him. He worked like hell to get into our bed (which is almost 3ft tall) so he really wanted to be near us! Last night he stayed awake all night in the living room and wouldn't move. Today he is acting his usual. Hiding from me, meowing like he wants attention, and climbing on stuff when I'm not in the room. He eats plenty, and uses the litter box several times a day (with the occasional "accident" somewhere else, which hasn't happened in over 24 hours). He has kept all his food down and everything, so I don't think he's sick. I should note that he has not had his first round of shots yet. Aside from the possibilty that he may be sick (we are visiting the vet Saturday), what do you guys think is going on? What should I do? Wait it out? Ignore him and let him come to me? Thanks for any advice.
