I adopted a beautiful cat recently, and she acts like a wild animal. Not like a feral cat. She just acts like she belongs in the jungle somewhere. She is very sturdy, lean, and long. She leaps the stairs in 3 bounds to the top! She does not like to be touched for 90% of the day, but will get affectionate in the early morning. Other than that, no growls or hisses, if I get too close, she just gets up and walks away. I can pet her only on her terms. Then she will nip her disapproval and the claws come out if I don’t take the hint. Her claws are no joke! She loves to play, but I have to be careful not to let the toys get too close to my feet because she is a strong aggressive hunter! She has accidentally caught my skin a few times, and her claws are no joke!! She always has a look of “**** off” on her face. Is there any chance she could become an affectionate cat. It’s been 2 months and she is still extremely wary of me. I also have a younger kitten that plays very well with her. They wrestle a lot, but no one ever gets hurt, so I guess as long as she is a good playmate for Ciel, that’s good, but I just want to put my hands on her so bad. My little cat is so affectionate. I had her from 9 weeks old.Maggie is about 2 years old and I have no idea what her life was like before, so I wonder if she still has some of the wild in her, and this may be the best our relationship will ever get. I feel like I’m trying to tame a Caracal.
