Yes we can talk all here, the system offer automatically a phone option. Sorry to hear about the loss of your Siamese.
Have we shown any interest in the treats you mentioned to me? Have you tried to put the food near the window where we are at? Many times I find it takes a few days for the new kitten to get adjusted and take to the new place. We have to learn how to make them feel happy and secure. Have you ever used any catnip in the past?
Do you have a small area like a pet porter or carrier that we may like to sleep in for a bit? Many times they will feel much happier and safer in a small, protected and safe area. What I meaning about the food, if there is a place that we want to be in a lot, at first we may need to offer food near to where the kitten is. Then in time we can bring it closer to where we want to place the food area at. Cat nip can make a cat happier and help to reduce some stress also.
There is a product called Feliway, it comes in a spray to spray on places, or a diffuser that you can plug into the wall. This releases natural pheromones into the house that will help reduce stress and anxiety in the kitty also.
Yes it takes a little time for the transition, most important is staying hydrated. Are we drinking some water? This is where many times I have found canned food to be helpful, it tastes better and smells more to stimulate the appetite more.
At the store look for some kitten canned food, especially the type that has lots of gravy, perhaps get 3 different types and try them. I find many times they like the type with gravy and shredded tuukey or chicken better than the patte. However every kitten is different, also get some patte, in the end, we need to do all we can ot make our little one happy. Tuna and tuna juice I find also works very well if you have that in the house also.
We can leave this question open for a few days if you would like. Every case is different how the kitten will come around. I would then say lets just stay in touch these next days and adjust the plan as our little one responds for you. Let me know your thoughts on this.
