Shy Cat Tip: Encourage Socializing
05.19.13 Don’t approach, corner or force attention on shy cats. Instead, encourage them to socialize with you. Sit or crouch a distance from the cat and invite her to come to you by extending one finger towards the cat at her nose level. If she feels secure, she will approach your finger, touch it with her nose, turn her head and rub her mouth and her cheek on your finger.
