My long distance boyfriend adopted a cat as a kitten about two years ago, along with one other very friendly kitten. Even when he adopted her she was a big scaredy cat, but she was showing some slow improvement shortly after her adoption. However, her progress has completely regressed. She mostly spends her time on the terrace or in the 'cat room' but seldom comes out to the public space. In the past while I was visiting I've tried both giving her attention and giving her space, but with little success (although I can now briefly pet her if I catch her relaxing on the couch before she runs off!). Now that I'm living here and can devout more time I'm wondering what methods could be affective. Thanks!
