I just brought a cat that is 5 yrs old home, and he is hiding under the couch.  He recently loss his owner and was put in a place where they took care of him, and I found him online, and adopted him.  What do I need to do to make him feel more comfortable? -Mary-

Dear Mary,

It is not unusual for a cat to hide for a few days when introduced to a new home. Keep the atmosphere quiet, leave treats or food out nearby. When you do see kitty tell him he is a good kitty. Also leave his litter boxes where it is easy for him to get to without having to cross really busy areas of the household.

You could also try our homeopathic liquid product called Anxietrex to reduce anxiety and homesickness. It can be added to the food or water. It has very little taste which makes it easy to administer. Soon your new cat will begin to bond to you.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
