The cat isnt shy, it is nervous. Shy is something we humans are, cats are nervous and that why it pees on you. To make sure you let go and it can run away again.

If he got used to it being in a specific place, he may not have an easy time adjusting. In my experience, most cats have a very strong dislike of changes in their environment or routines. It's not impossible to get him adjusted, but it might not be the most fun thing in the world, especially if he's nervous already.

You're probably right, mostly, but in my case the cat is fine. We've moved her box a few times over the years and she's okay with it. Except this one time it was in the bathroom, next to the toilet, and she was suddenly peeing in the house. Mom got mad and didn't understand why... I told her for weeks to move it, but she liked it there. I moved it myself and she suddenly stopped, just like I knew she would. The reason? My brother has TERRIBLE aim.

Is there any way you can put the litter box back where it was? A cat, especially nervous ones not used to their surroundings, tend to like routine. Honestly, nearly all cats like some sort of routine. You may end up with the problem of the kitty peeing in the place where the litter box used to be. I'd suggest maybe gently urging the cat towards the new litter room until it feels adjusted enough to go in and out by itself. I know it's a pain OP, but it's better than cat pee everywhere

cats aren't shy animals, just picky as to who they like or accept and need time to get used to new people or surroundings, try Bach plant extracts, cat mint or calming drops..usually helps. good luck with your new furbaby OP
