My black long-hair kitty Bella is very much like me! I think she chose me, actually. I sat in a room of 4 little kittens (2 of the littler had already been adopted), and it was about 30 minutes before any cat dared approach me. But it was Bella who came out to play first!
Of all the cats, she was the most skittish and guarded, but she was the first to reach out to me.
She's very cautious, even for a cat. When she first came to live with my dad and I she always hid in my bookshelf or anywhere that gave her cover. So, so fearful.
I actually still walk toe-heel around her, and for months I would also walk by her very slowly with my back to her, otherwise she'd run away from me. Even sudden motions, almost 2 years later, she still gets startled and runs away like she's about to be stepped on or something. lol
She's really blossomed, though, she jumps around for the toy wand I have, she never used to jump. She is very vocal now, very vocal, she likes when I rub her fur down with the leftover water on my hands after I've washed them, she loves the top of her head scratched and loves to be pet crazy like a dog, and she follows me absolutely everywhere- very attached. And most importantly, I feel like when she looks at me, she's seeing me and I'm seeing her. Like we just understand each other. I know that sounds reeeeeeally creepy. >_<
Biscuit, my other kitty who's of the same litter as Bella (as well as my boyfriend's cat), she has the personality of my little sister (not that my sister lives with my dad and I, or that Biscuit is that comfortable around her).
-Ends up banging her head around a lot because she's not careful about where she's going, especially if she's chasing a toy. She's very good with catching the toys, though, I'd say 1 in 3 times she's caught the toy, easily.
-She also has always been the alpha cat of the litter. Just very outgoing and curious and adventuresome, although she's the most afraid of new strangers of all the cats.
-Also very vocal, she always meowed the most, she always tells me when she wants something. The others never needed to nag at me for more food because Biscuit did it!
