I have three 13-mo-old litter mates who were born feral. They came to my yard at approx. 6-8 weeks old. Since then, I've had great success taming them. They all come to me when called, all love to be pet, and my two neutered males love to be held and cuddled. However, my spayed female, Faylene, will not let me pick her up. Each time I gently try, she always slips away - purring the entire time (as she does in any situation)! Will she always hold onto this feralness? Any tricks to gain her confidence to pick her up, or is she a cat who just doesn't want to be held?! Another one of her silly traits - she does not meow!! They only time she has ever talked to me is when we trapped her to take her in for spay/shots (a "why are you doing this" voice). Any advice or answers? Thanks!
