Glad to hear you have a new kitty around the house! My older cat was very timid, she came to us from the street and was very nervous. Later on we brought a dog and a young kitty and though she acted as if she was hurt, it actually brought her out of her shell - she's much more playful and brave now.
Please don't de-claw the young kitty - it's one of their only defenses. I clip my cats' claws. If you'll get her used to it early, she won't mind. I just pay attention not to clip on the part with blood vessels. you can also buy or make a special mat for the kitty to "do the nails".
Good luck!
