This beautiful cat has been with the same family since birth. I brought him home this morning and fully exp ected him to hide and be nervous but he has been in my bedroom for 10 hours, he hasn't eaten or been to the litter box. I just went in to talk to him and sooth him but he hissed and growled at me. Will this pass? Should I just leave him alone? Is this move going to scar him?
