I have just purchased a Turkish Van kitten from a breeder. He is about 4 months old, and I have only had him for a little over a week. There are 2 issues that I am dealing with about this sweet little boy. He is very shy and timid and hides and every time I enter a room, and he looks like he wants to run, but when I say his name then he is fine. He is afraid of my husband and won't let him touch or go near him. Also, if you make a sudden move or a noise, he runs but will come back by me.
Now for the second question: he will play with a toy and then he will pick it up and carry it to the litter box. That is gross and I don't want him to get discouraged and then think that he shouldn't use the litterbox. What can I do to stop him from doing this yucky habit?
