I'm new here but have been reading all the posts about ferals since trying to tame my new little girl, Felicia. I brought her into the house about 6 weeks ago and we have taken lots of steps forward and backwards as other people have posted about.
We are in a good place right now with her coming up to me and asking for pets. She is still very afraid of my hands even though she will rub on them. Sometimes when I'm petting her she will suddenly whip her head around, see my hand and will hiss and swat me with her paw (no claws out and no tail fluffing). She then runs under the bed. I don't know what to do when this happens but I try to not have any reaction. I also don't want to leave the room after this so I let her relax a little and then initiate some play. She comes around immediately to that!
Am I on the right track? Will this get better? Is there anything else I can do or should be doing?
Thanks for any help or support!
