Socialize with them from the beginning. Teach your cat that you are a reliable source for social interaction by offering play, cuddles, or just gently talking to them if they are shy.
Respect their personal space. Social interaction is essential, but some cats also need alone time. If your cat wanders off to hide or nap, give them a bit of time to decompress.
Look for communication cues. Your cat may approach you when seeking something, such as food or interaction, whether that’s in the form of playtime, cuddles, or just basking in your presence.
