Dear Cat Lady,
Pebbles the kitten we got the kids for Christmas is hiding. What can we do?
Poor Pebbles. First let’s make her feel safe.
Christmas is generally is a busy and noisy time with lots hazards , not the best time to bring a new family member into house.
Give Pebbles a quiet, out of the way place with her litter pan, food, water, and maybe even a stuffed toy for her to snuggle. This would be an excellent start.
