Update on Ben
Ben has now been inside for 3 weeks today! She is coming along good, eating good, always using the litter box. She hides underneath the futon, but comes out whenever I go in the room and sit with her, which I do at least 5 - 6 times a day, and whenever I pass the room I always talk to her through the screen door. I still have not been able to touch her, movement with my hands scares her, but she comes to within a foot of me and sits, eats, washes. I am waiting for her to come out of her hiding place more on her own, but I realize this can take a long time as everything is new to her, I am prepared for that!
Is there anything I can do with my hands, to try and get her to "accept" my hands?? She has toys, but is a little afraid of them, although I do hear her at night playing.
Any encourgement and advice is appreciated!!!!
