Sometimes it’s just not your fault. Little Otis here is one of two very special litter mates we’ve been sitting for. He’s very very shy. The first week, he emerged for his mealtimes. That’s it. We’ve never met a cat who didn’t warm up to us after a few days. Otis’s continued shyness was starting to worry us!
Out we went and bought every treat he might like, and during week 2, liberally bribed Otis and therefore his brother, with any of the treats he responded to with gusto.
After nearly three weeks of diligent cat worship we may finally have succeeded! He is sleeping in the same room as me, if not on the same sofa!
