Helping a New Cat Out of Hiding

We foster a lot of shy cats and try to get them socialized. The hiding and skittishness is normal. As long as the cat is eating I would let her be and let her get used to things. Then while she's eating you can start to work with her getting closer and touching. It may go on for weeks but she'll come around.

Locating the Owners of a Stray Cat

Try getting a hold of all of your neighbors and see if the cat is anybody's pet. Take a picture of the cat, create a "found pet" flyer, and post the flyer in places where it will be seen by a lot of people. If you are unable to locate the cat's caregivers, try finding the cat a good home.
