Question by New Boots.: How to help my rescue cat settle in better?
I got a cat from a rescue centre yesterday.She is clearly terrified and hasn’t come out from behind the washing machine yet! Well,she must have at some point because her food is going and she has used her litter tray.I know she has the potential to be a great cat,she was calm and affectionate at the shelter. I have done the basics like just leaving her alone and not hassling her but the poor thing is still cowering! No point trying to lure her out with a trail of dry food,she has no teeth. How long can I expect the transition period to last and how can I boost her confidence? There are no other pets in the house and the kids know to keep things calm and quiet.

Don’t leave the cat alone. Get the cat involved in activities like sitting and quietly watching tv. Pet the ca whenever you can, show alot of affection.
Cats adapt quickly, if you leave it alone all it will know is to stay away.
