I agree with everyone else ... you may want to try warming a little chicken broth and mixing it with his food to make it smell extra yummy. You may also want to put his food bowl where it's out of the line of traffic and he feels safe turning his back on everyone to eat.

Once he gets used to the new digs, I'm sure he'll perk up a bit. You might try taking him on a walk in the neighborhood so you and he get to know each other a bit and so when you return home, he has the feeling of being somewhere familiar after being outside. That might make him settle in a little faster.

Be sure not to coddle the fear though; you don't want to teach him that it's okay to be afraid. As hard as it may be, just go about your "normal" day and let him observe you and figure out what you're all about. He'll ease into the family once he realizes that he better join in or he's missing out! :D
