Why Is My Kitten So Skittish?

my kitten is about a yr old and i got her from a breeder. She was pretty skittish at first, but she has gotten better with time. I have noticed that the last couple days she has been very scared of something in our house. When i go into a room where my husband is working late one night to get food or anything close to him, my kitty will hide under the sofa or behind curtains until he leaves. As soon as he does leave she comes out and starts exploring again like nothing happened! Does this mean there’s something bad in the house? Or maybe its just because im not keeping up with her when we are gone? My husband thinks it might be because someone keeps trying to steal things when we are gone so maybe thats why she hides when they come in:) Help!I’m worried about what could be scaring her right now..My kitten is about a yr old and i got her from a breeder.
