I recently adopted two kittens (both are siblings) and since having them I've noticed they are extremely nervous and scared. They only come out when nobody is home, and I'm trying to get them used to me.
I've set up them up in one room with their cat bed (its a hooded one for some shelter) some litter box trays and water.
I've been trying to feed them about twice a day, and when I do, I try to get really low to the ground (sometimes I'll just lay down on it) and either have different food bowls around the room so they can explore the room with me in it. Or, I'll have the food in front of their bed and just lay away from them.
One of the kitties, will eat with me in the room. He will get out of his cat bed, and he'll even travel across the room to use the litter box or sniff things when I'm around. However the other kitty will not budge from the cat bed. I tried to place the food bowl as close as possible to the bed and she will still not poke her head out enough to eat.
At this point I'm just so worried and I want her to eat something. But I'm unsure of how to get her to eat. I had to grab them once out of their bed and I know its really bad to keep doing that and so I'm trying to avoid that at all costs. But, if I just place more food bowls near the bed, eventually the braver kitty will eat the food instead. If anyone has any suggestions, I'll be glad to hear it.
