    Still no cat It's over 1 week now and she's still hiding. She uses the beds I have in the cat room (there's telltale clumps of grey fur lining them all now), but I know as soon as she hears me turn the door knob, she jumps down and hides. I'm getting quite discouraged since the idea was for me to have a companion for Phinehas and another playmate for Sylvia. At this rate, I don't know if that will even be possible and maybe we made the wrong decision? I thought I had asked all the right questions of her cat meowmie and gave details about what I was looking for in terms of a new kitty and she thought it would work out. I feel like a failure on this one so far - I haven't dealt with a cat like this before. All of my kitties have been friendly and have never hidden from me, so I don't know what else I can do. I still go in several times a day to read her some chapters from a book so she can at least get used to my voice. I also leave treats but don't know what else there is to do. I am giving it another week, but if she doesn't come out, I feel like maybe I should email her original meowmie again to see what she thinks and maybe it wasn't the right fit. I feel bad about that, but it just seems her personality isn't a very social one.

    I just had to update everyone that Freya is coming out of her shell and getting more comfortable with us. I'm learning more about her purrsonality as she is about ours. I'm so so happy she's finally opening up to us! She's coming out more and developing her "favorite spots". She even slept on the bed with me and Phinehas the other night!
    She is so incredibly silky soft! It took awhile, but so glad that effort has paid off! Here is the princess looking more relaxed on her favorite couch...

    She is absolutely stunning! I am so glad she is settling down and letting herself be loved on.

    Oh, Freya! Not only are you stunningly gorgeous, you look so much more relaxed and content in your Furrrever HOME!

    Awww! Good to see her so relaxed and comfortable enough to be doing "up periscope" and looking around instead of being scared and hiding!

    Her expression is so much softer than her first picture.

    Thanks all! It was definitely worth it! She really is a very sweet and soft kitty! She's a jumper for sure, which I know hubby isn't too thrilled about - but it's all in a cats nature. I'm so glad she's more at ease now. Phinehas and Freya are so cute together! They aren't cuddlers, but maybe in time they will be. I do catch them playing together, which is great!
