I have several cats, but i recently adopted 1 cat from my sister because she was moving into a house where she couldn't have pets.. and my mother almost had a stroke when she mentioned putting said cat in shelter. My mother has literally had a ton of strokes 3 major and 5 minor, We do not, put her under any emotional stress we can avoid, So i took the cat for her peace of mind because she just loves animals a little too much.
Well this particular cat, is difficult, its a smaller fluffy girl cat, I've had cats adjust to my home better than this cat has, I adopted this cat 2 weeks ago as of today, she has not adjusted at all, has lost a ton of weight, no ones abusing her or harassing her, i don't have kids that are bugging her, my oldest is too young to even catch a cat(7 months old). We set food and water out in weird places for her, she has access to all the liter boxes, none of my cats are fighting with her, even when you check the security camera's she's just laying down with them, they don't care at all. So its not a cat adjusting to other cats issue, its a cat adjusting to new humans issue.
Is there anything i can do? i have her in a carrier cage right now so she can't go hide in, anymore weird places while i try to figure out how to make her comfy. She was hiding under my deep freeze for a week! I thought she was dead or got out or something! even with security camera's it looked like she had gotten outside somehow when a room mate left.
No one in my house screams, my house is never overly loud. they have food and water constantly, their liter boxes are changed at least twice a day.
I have no idea what else to do.
Oh and my mom didn't take the cat because she's already at the city limits for pets. Can't have anymore.
