Cerealkiller, do you ever take in any shy/skittish kitties and try to socialize them or get them to trust people? There's a few shy ones at the shelter, and I know a few things to do, like backing off if they flee, getting down below their level if they are perched up, moving slowly and talking quietly. Do you have anything else besides that?

Yes. Normally isolate them to one bedroom and spend time with them playing with cat toys. Easier if they are still kittens, although one we brought in was shy outside was instantly lovable inside, but doesn't like other cats around him. Some take years to warm up to you and there is one that never lets us get near him. You never know.
