New cat won’t leave the couch?

I adopted a cat on Monday, a 6-year-old girl. She hid in the corner the first day, as expected. But then I started putting her on the couch and snuggling her there which she seems to like.


On the couch, she’s a sweet loving purring baby. But if I try to put her down or take her to another room to explore, she will hide in a corner and hiss at me and sometimes pant. Do we think this will go away with time?

Too soon
by: Jim W.

It's too soon to explore. She'll feel safer in a quiet, smaller room. Once she's used to that, she can explore when she's ready.
