How is she with your husband? Usually the men are the abusers so animals tend to shy away from men more than women.Sasha (ChaCha) makes a little progress every hour. Baby steps. My rescue friend had to come help me yesterday with the resource guarding. Today she is in her own bed and I will take her for frequent walks and to my store when I go feed the store kitty.
The house cats are still an issue. She is very reactive.
I laid on the couch yesterday and watched a movie. She snuggled up to me and let me pet and stroke her.
This girl has clearly been abused. She is slow to trust but I think, with time, she will learn to trust me and know that I am not going to hurt her. My friend suggested I make the name change gradually.
She's going to be a happy and loving ChaCha! Baby steps.
