We have just got 2 long awaited kittens. Not had cats since I was a child, and clearly wasn't paying enough attention....
Main questions are about how long they're likely to take to 'settle in'... We're doing everything that (I think) we're supposed to. They're in a quiet room with litter tray, food water, toys etc. we go in occasionally and sit quietly. So far they've come out to play a little with the toys or with each other when we've been in the room, but they are staying well away from us. They spend most of the time hiding under the bed/ wardrobe. I was just clearing the litter tray and heard lots of hissing coming from under the bed. Poor little things are obviously v frightened stil, but wondering how long this might go on for. I was hoping for cuddles and purrs... But am probably just being impatient.
Anyone been through this who can shed some light on it, please? And is there anything else we should be doing?
They are 8 weeks old.
