We got a 5 month old kitten about 2 weeks ago. So far she doesn't let anyone near her. No one has been able to get close enough to pet her or pick her up. She hides most of the day under a bed, comes out in the morning and evening. I've been able to get her to take treats from my hand but as soon as she gets it she backs away. She hasn't meowed in days, and when my kids came home last weekend, she hissed at them and also me. I understand she may be frightened and stressed but how long will it take for her to let us near her? She is scratching everything and I can't cut her nails or take her to the vet because I can't get hear enough to grab her or pick her up!
