I gained the trust of a feral and she has been with me as an inside cat for 3 years now. She only really trusts me and hides from others, but for the most part she is absolutely wonderful. My question is although she loves to lay next to me whenever possible and I can pet her, rub her belly, that way, she will not let me hold her, and doesnt like being picked up. I had her spayed after she had kittens (right after I took her in of course!) and she was okay at the vets, they clipped her nails, etc. But now, she will not let me trim her nails, and she also has a good knott of hair on her back. I am afraid the knott of hair is getting bigger and has to be kind of painful as it is pulling, but I dont know if I should just take her back to the vets and let them shave the patch off, and trim her nails, or if I should attempt it myself. I would just hate for her to think the one person she trusts let her down. Anyway, sorry if this sounds silly, but my animals are people to me, and I dont want to do anything to break our trust. Any suggestions? She actually does okay in the car as long as she is in my lap. Do you think the vets office will do that ? Thank you.
