A little over two weeks ago my hubby asked if we could help find a home for a young kitty that was part of a TNR program. About 4 or 5 months old. Supposedly very friendly but ended up not having had hardly any human interaction before. He brought her home so we could work on socializing her. And he named her Ginger just from her picture before he actually picked her up (I knew then we had a new cat).
After a couple days we were able to pet her but she wouldn’t come out of hiding.
After a week she started coming out a little while we were petting her but the slightest noise or fast movement sent her into hiding again.
Eventually she started curling up on our arms.
Now we are starting the introductions to the other cats.
Penny constantly meows at her. Has slapped at Ginger a couple times. But otherwise just talking smack at her. I managed to get a picture just after Ginger ran up to her but before Penny slapped at her.
Pixie won’t even go into the room where we have Ginger. Just stands at the door and hisses.
Psycho wandered the room, rolled around, let Ginger get close. Didn’t react at all.
After about 10 min she did start a slap fest with Ginger and I heard Ginger hiss. Today is the first I’ve heard any sound from her.
