    I hope so 🤞It is kind of funny when I’m sitting on the floor alone in her room and she is out the door 😆 I do hope she comes around eventually 💕

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    Yes, sometimes . She has eaten the gerber baby food from a spoon, but seems to prefer temptations mouse treat in a long pouch . I need to move slow and go to her. I can’t seem to get her to come out , even just a little to reach it, but she will eat it if close to her and again I’m very slow ...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    I guess you are right . This is now her socialization work . Clearly it’s new for me and I keep second guessing everything I am doing 😢 I have used treats, various types of treats and she will briefly eat and then turn away or leave . I’m going to keep trying with the treats .

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    I was wondering about her lack of vocalizing. I’ve never heard her make a sound at all (no meow, purr, she even has silent hiss ) I have considered that maybe I should pay less attention to her . It does feel weird, but Maybe she feels that I’m trying too hard ?? I have noticed if she is hiding...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    Update on Alina. It’s been 2 months . She seems more comfortable in her room and enjoys exploring the living room at night . She has allowed me to sit closer when she is eating and has come out of her hiding spot to eat despite me being near . She hides if I stand or come into a room she is in ...

    That makes sense,… and is sad . So I’m guessing it just might take longer for Alina to come out of her shell too . thank you for the continued feedback and support!

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    Hi ! Thanks for the feedback. Do you know if your friends cat continued to hide under the bed after the 4 months . She has his under my bed and gets room and couch for a few days . Im blocking all areas I think she may get in and have now shut most of the doors to limit access. Im wondering if...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    Yes she was from a rescue. From what I do know . She was rescued with several cats , her mom and sister . Her mom was considered “not adoptable “ due to her feral and aggressive behavior and she was very protective of Alina , so I guess they needed to separate them so that Alina had some...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    Ok. Thank you! I am thinking that’s what I should do too . She is curious about exploring, but I think it’s maybe too early since she is still so afraid of me and was hiding so much that all I saw was her glowing eyes from under the bed for 2 days 😥. She actually went into her safe room a few...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    I have a single floor home and I have tried to block off rooms and spaces where she might hide . She is clever (as most cats are ) and has gotten under the barricades I set up around the guest room and couch . I have closed the room door , but she is currently under the couch and I can’t get to...

    Looking for support/ adopted semi-feral cat

    So , I think I might have made a mistake:( Alina has been exploring more when I’m not in the room and playing and I let the door open to a few rooms of the house . Now she is hiding, I have found her , but she will not come out and I’ve only known that she has eaten when I leave food . I’m so...
