Dear *****,Thanks so much for your very helpful reply. I am glad to hear Winston is able to urinate. It sounds like he is just scared in unfamiliar surroundings.It is normal for a cat in a new location to immediately scope out a safe spot where he can hide while watching the world around him.Once he feels safe he will come out and interact with you and the other kitty.Drain the water from a can of tuna and see if he will lap it up. If he does, offer the tuna.If you have his things or furniture from the other house place it around so he can smell familiar scents.Do not force him, just let him decide when to walk around and explore the new territory. Please let me know how things go. If you need me just reply and I will be here for you.Love,Terri
