Some cats are just like that. They are a one-person, or one-family cat. Sometimes they mellow as they age, some don't. i don't think that it was because Toby may have been feral. I was a longtime breeder of Manx cats, and I remember well a lovely cream girl I had who never liked being picked up, or liked strangers coming into the house. Her sire and dam were very calm, sweet and outgoing as were their kittens, except this one girl. I could never figure out why she was the oddball. In retrospect I think she felt overwhelmed with the other cats vying for my attention, because during a followup visit to her new home where she was the only cat of single lady, the two of them just doted on each other, and she loved being picked up by her, followed her about and slept in her bed, so it was the perfect home for her.
