    We had a wild cat years ago.....Just stared at us and would run and hide like yours does. He eventually came around and was one of the smartest animals I ever had....(could fetch better than some dogs)

    It's going to take lots of handling and feeding from your hand to gain that trust. Recommend you do this in a safe place away from the dog and other distractions.

    i don't really know much getting them to eat though. Maybe leave something it can get to and talk to a vet for better advice ASAP.

    I'm taking my dog to the vet on Wed. Gonna talk to him about the cat as well then.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    You may want to bring the kitten along and let the vet take a look. Sometimes, if a cat is physically ill, it will not eat and avoid contact with anyone. It's probably not the case, but better safe than sorry.

    I say put it in a bathroom by itself with it's own litter box for a few days, spend some one on one time with him when you go in there to feed it. Pet it's head while it eats, try to rub your hands all over him, get YOUR scent on it. I fostered an adult cat a while ago who was never properly socialized. She evenutally let me pet her, and hold her and even trim her nails...but it took a week.

    Well my wife put a small bowl with some soft food under the couch with him today. We just got home from dinner and checked, and he ate it. Also found his poop in the litter box. That was a good sign.

    We got a new litter box for him as well.

    I'll try to corral him into the laundry room tonight, but he's eating right now, so that's something at least.

    Yup, he's making progress...since it's still a kitten, you can coax him out....

    That is good. You may not need to put him in the laundry room. Give him a few days to get comfortable in his surroundings and then he may actually come out and want to be petted or held.

    Not a bad thought. We opened a can of tuna the other day and our cats went berserk, as they always do. Maybe a bit of chunk light tuna on a plate by his other food, just to see how he takes to it, but no more than a teaspoon or so, as he's still pretty tiny.
