Hello everyone, I got my kitten when she was 6 months from a shelter (they do not know her background history) and when I got her in, she was so friendly and sat on my lap on day 1! She would sit next to me, knead on me, sleep next to my face and sleep on my lap. However, things have changed and now she's 1 year old...For some reason, she became really jumpy and with the slightest movement she'll run away. She won't sleep on my lap anymore, knead on me or sit next to me- not even cuddling up on me apart from sleeping next to my feet. I gave her so much love and attention, so I don't know what caused her behaviour to change. Here are my theories: 1) I did have to leave abroad for 3 months, so my brother took her in but she did not adjust well with his 3 male cats (younger than her). It was like a cat war in the house and very stressful for the cats and the humans! I think the stress caused a behaviour change? 2) After few days living with my brother, he had to resort her to someone else's house with no cats- she adjusted well there, but the sudden change if 2 houses could've caused another stress factor. 3) Because I was stressed with the situation, it was my fault that I didn't give much attention to her when she needed me and then I had to leave for the airport while I left her with 3 cats she hates. I guess this caused trust issues? Please can anyone give me advice. I love her so much, but I really miss her previous behaviour. She was so calm and not jumpy. P.S. I'm giving her a lot of attention now and she will let me pet her, allow me to sit next to her and she does purr plus her tail is upright.
