Just read a book called "Tilly" about a very nervous rescue cat who hid under the bed for ages, but I think yours may have a bit more confidence. It will be lovely to see her character emerge.

Doesn't that usually start with "Why is my food bowl a little bit empty?":D :lol:

My adoptee cat has a few biscuits, all of the milk or tuna water and then demands to have more biscuits!

You should not be feeding your cat Milk, Kevin, it's very bad for them:

Sorry - I use milk generically. I mean the cat milk that has been modified. Sorry to cause alarm and worry.

I did try water but the cat wasn't having any of it. He does like Tuna Spring Water though!

Today I was allowed 2 small strokes of her head before I was told no more  :D

and yes, she is still being a little piggy  ::)

She was quiet last night but she now has a few (more) toys to play with, which may have helped.


and Tosca, thanks for the offer, but please no cat donations  :nowink:

All our cats have been rescue cats. One was especially nervous. One day, I tied a cork on a piece of string, sat on the floor with my legs stretched out and got her used to me by flinging the cork about while she hopped over my legs trying to catch it. Not much work for me, but she forgot to be nervous of me and wore herself out. Ended up falling asleep right next to me, allowing me to fuss her as she was dozy and snoozing. So she got used to being handled as well.

She is beautiful!  :) Hope she settles in really quickly.  And that you get some sleep! :dry:

She's a cutie, won't take long to come around, once she settles and realizes there just the home comforts to worry about.

All you have to worry about, is when 1 turns into 4 and number 5 is being friendly at the front door... ::)

She has checked out the bathroom, noting to worry about there  ;) atm she has crossed the landing and is exploring my bedroom.

I just hope she doesn't sit on the ironing pile  :ohmy:

We have had a bit of a different problem with our "rescue cat". Inverted commas as we didn't rescue him, he just moved in. We already have 5 cats acquired or foisted on us from various sources so didn't think that another would chance their arm trying to move in. How wrong can you be...

George managed it through a charm offensive and rapidly moving from rubbing up against us outdoors for cuddles and sneaking into steal food to sleeping on the bed in about 4 weeks! He put his mark on the house (in Nick's case literally when he sprayed up his leg one morning!) and we decided at that point he might be staying but his testicles weren't!

Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
