Behavior Modification
by: my2wins

There is a good video on YouTube showing a cat expert teaching feral cats how to trust humans.

Not that your cat is feral, but the behavior modification and training is the same.

From what I remember, its all about staying calm, providing lots of food and water, being very patient, and using some specific behavior modification techniques.

Expect it to take weeks if not longer once you get a consistent process going. It will pay off.

rescued her

I am so sorry.I did see that she was 3 years old.I rescue cats also.My last two I had the same problem.Mine were abused and it was so scary.They would hide under the bed and only come out at night when I was a sleep.Just give her time.Make sure she always knows she has fresh water and food.Talk to her and reassure her everything will be ok.Tell her you love her and want to take care of her.Here are my stories and I hope they help. http://www.we-are-siamese.com/my-cat-journey-.html

Very normal

You will blend as a family.Lots of love and attention.I would talk to her and make sure she knows she is safe.Remember she is a baby amd has been taken from her mommy.Give her the comfort and love and you will become a wonderful family before you know it.
