I have very recently adopted a very shy 2-year old cat (Vinyl) from a shelter. Since adoption I have had to take him back to the vets for special care and hospitalisation. Once Vinyl came back from hospitalisation, he started to let me tickle his tummy, was eating well and happy to spend time with my younger cat (9 months - also male and spayed - whom I found stuck in a bush at 4 weeks).
Vinyl has had a very difficult medical and obviously psychological past (found lost in the streets of Paris, with many medical problems). Following his last visit to the vets, yesterday, he seems to have lost all the confidence he was slowly building up with me. And now I have to give him nose drops twice a day. He hides every time he sees me, so I'm not sure how to give him his meds without scaring the poor little boy even more.
Does anyone have any advice?
