Hi all. I have a wonderful little boy who I recently adopted from the SPCA to act as a support animal as I have pretty severe mental illness. While we were living in my parents home he was a perfect lil angel and always wanted cuddles and attention. We recently moved him into my dorm room where he’ll be staying with me and my 3 roommates in a suite style dorm for about another month and a half until the semester is over. I’m sure he is just stressed out about being in a new environment with a bit less space but he doesn’t want me to pet him anymore and prefers to sleep in my roommates bed. I don’t mind if he wants to cuddle with them but I would like him to trust me as I provide most of his care. Any tips for gaining his trust again?

Food. And fun games with a feather on a string. And a peaceful lap when everyone else is out of the way. But cooked boneless chicken is the great persuader, I have found, and few cats stay stand offish with the person who provides three meals a day!
there is often no telling why a cat is doing what it's doing! i get worried that anby doesn't love me anymore sometimes, too, but she always seems to put up with me at the end of the day.
