Some cats we rescue are shyer than others. We have a team of Kitty Cuddlers who work with shy cats and teach them how to trust humans again before we make them available for adoption. Some cats will always be a little shy or timid, while others may go back into their shells for a little while after being adopted and moving into a new environment. Here are some resources for teaching your shy cat to trust you and bond with you.
