I've adopted a new, 14 week old kitten, who seems to be rather skittish. He has been avoiding being handled and he tends to hiss and run when picked up, and prefers to play with us from a distance.
We've been trying to keep the noise level down, and get him used to us so we can socialise him. He also seems to cry a lot, especially at night.
How do we socialise, and help a young kitten settle in? I grew up with kittens and cats, but never one this young.
