I noticed tonight in the wee hours while I have been letting Lovey explore, she flinches if you move your hands towards her. She almost act's like she has been hit or something. She flinches and then crouches, I feel so bad for her. Could this just be from being outside and having to defend herself? Or is it a sign that she may have been abused? Or better yet is it because she is nervous in her new domain?

Poor Lovey! She's so sweet! Maybe with time she will forget her bad experiences and adjust to the new loving home you have given her.

That's what Bailey did too. And she would also flinch if someone walked towards her. I assumed it was a defensive thing, learned from being outside on her own. Imagine what the poor thing had to go through, not being taught outdoor survival skills from a feral mom.

Bailey has improved a lot, she still gets nervous at sudden movements, but is much calmer, and will lie in the middle of the room and make people walk around her. I found that she liked having a place to hide that she could easily run to when she was startled, that gave her security.
