Our cat, for example, is not the most sociable cat in the world. She sure is sweet, but she does tend to have a very timid personality. A lot of it probably has to do with her past. When we adopted her, there was very little information available about her past. We suspect that she was living on the street when her foster family rescued her. It’s no wonder she was a very cautious cat at first!
It took a while for our cat to trust us and become comfortable enough be around her new humans. She has come a long way! Our little shy kitty lets us pat her and rub her belly. She comes to snuggle with us in bed or keeps us company on the couch, but this didn’t happen right way. We had to be patient and understanding that we can’t force our affections on her. Our lady cat has yet to come on our laps. And as much as I desire that, I am also very aware that it may never happen either. We will love our cat regardless!
