A. cage should be big enough with remote hiding place. try to use the same litter as in the shop and the same food. you can introduce new food gradually by mixing it with old one for couple of days. place the cage in the corner, not on the floor, not in the corridor or place often passed by and not by the window. don't remove your pet from the cage for a couple of first days then increase contacts slowly.
