Hide when company comes over. Tavia will not come out of hiding if anyone besides my dad and I are here and she will come to the hallway if my sister is here and will occasionally come to the couch but if my sister moves at all the Tavia runs and hides under my bed and will not come out. And I don't know why she does this. I don't want to stress her so I leave her alone about it. And when an aquatiance of mine used to come over she wouldn't even come out from under the bed but that girl saw her on the washer machine one day (her fave spot to nap) and picked her up and Tavia does not like to be picked up and would not put her down when she wanted down I had to take her away from her and tell her to leave her alone and she is a grown woman. But I called animal control on this same person when I saw her cats and the shape they was in. I think maybe Tavia sensed that she was not a good animal person and really not that good of a person period. But she won't even come out around my uncle and she sees him every day and if my dad walks around the house she goes and hides on my bed. Which is where she stays alot that and her footstool. And I just wonder if its normal kitty behavior. My ex was not nice to her which is one of the big reasons I told him to leave when he got mad and wanted to split because of some other stuff. And I think maybe he made her a skittish kitty. I just wish I could help her be more comfortable around company.
