Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.

But, we have lots of love to give her

I love how furry the white fur on her chest is. It's amazing to me that people give up their pets just because they're moving. I drove 11 1/2 hours down here with two cats in my car. But it's their loss and it turned into an adorable ball of fur for you!

Yep! Hard to believe!

I switched the room she was in last night... I finally coaxed her out from under my bed.

I have a spare bedroom with no bed. But it has a desk, chair, extra computers and some boxes, so she can still hide but we can easily get to her.

I played with her for 1.5-2 hours last night. Once I got her out she was a little love. Loves to be petted and snuggled and purrs real loud.

This morning I played with her before work. When I came into the room she at least ventured out a little bit from her hiding spot. She was rubbing against me and purring real loud. A little progress!

It sounds like Oreo is beginning to get comfortable! Playing with her for a long time was a great idea.

My Murphy was declawed when we adopted him from the shelter, and he's an extremely lovable, in-your-face goof who's never been very shy. Don't assume terrible things will happen just because she's declawed!

Yikes definitely can see why she would be insecure among other cats. My cat loves to hide to. But only when I enter the room. Then she comes out a second later and walks between my legs like nothing happened! She also loves to snuggle on the bed. Definitely weird!

She is getting more confident, I think. She doesn't seem to hide as much and gets up on the chair/desk. She also ate most of her food this morning.

She is such a love - the second you pet her she purrs and when you stop and get up/leave she starts to meow.

The cats seem fine with each other. I think Gadget is hanging around her and waiting for her to come out of her shell and play.

Before I left for work, I cracked the room's door. I also closed the door my bedrooms and basement and put the litter boxes on the second floor.

Just an update... Oreo is settling in nicely. She doesn't hide as much and when she does, it's usually under the dining room table.

She eats now with Gadget and begs for food lol.

She loves to be picked up and petted. She has a nice purr.
