My Pet World: How To Safely Get Scared Cat In Carrier


Last updated 6/17/2020 at 5:05pm

Dear Cathy,

We have a shelter cat named Chechee, now 7, who is very skittish and frightened every moment of the day. It is impossible to cuddle with her and we can barely pet her because she runs away and hides. We would like to have her examined by a veterinarian, but we can’t pick her up, let alone put her in a carrier.

All of her needs (food, clean litter box) are met. We are at our wit’s end. She has bitten my wife once when we attempted to pick her up. She is not angry just skittish, and we can’t figure out how to solve this issue. Please help.
