A lot of it may depend on your interaction with her. When I adopted one from the spca, he was very sick, and I would cuddle him and rub my check over the top of his head, kind of head butt him. Now he is almost two and when he wants love he climbs on my lap and rubs his head against my cheek. I also taught him no hard biting of me, and he is brave and friendly with strangers. Another Kitten that I did not have as much human intervention with because I was fostering him, his mother and three siblings, is not quite as receptive to human touch, but he is getting better. I think this is because he spent his formative months with his mom and sisters and was not dependent on me for comfort. he is a shy guy too, but he is coming around. He just turned a year old.
