I don't know if this is "classfied" as feral, but she startles very easily - noises, especially people, she is only comfortable with me, she is still very weary of my husband and will usually run when she sees him, sometimes she stays in the same room as him, but very weary - I am training HIM, to talk to her softly, blink the eyes and so on. I can pat her only when I am sitting on the floor in her room, she sits on my lap and lets me pat her all over and she will give me kisses and head buts when she is on my lap, but any kind of petting other than the usual and she will back off. She will curl up on my lap while I sit on the floor and sleep. I usually do this several times a day. I am trying to get her to come to my hand when I am standing, especially in the other rooms, she does follow me from room to room and will usually come when I call her. But again anything out of the ordinary she will run. She has only scratched me once in the three years she has been in, and that was my fault, I put my face down to hers when she was only in the house a few weeks, and she let me have it!! Other than that she is not agressive. I cannot pick her up, but the my niece who is a vet tech can, but she doesn't like it. I am trying to get to the day where I can pick her up, she has to have medicine put on her lip when it flares up, and she won't let me do it, so my niece comes over and puts it on. I have my grandkids over and she will hide for a while, but then I start to see her coming out of her room, nobody can get close to her but me though.
I think maybe this is semi-feral?, I have never had a feral before or have done anything like this before, so any input is welcome!!
