I just want to thank you all for advising that I let my new kitty adjust on her terms - it was hard not to cuddle and kiss on her, but I refrained. She has gone from a scared and hiding cat to coming up to sit next to me on the couch for petting while I watch TV. In just over a week.

Reading the forums about talking softly, avoiding eye contact and letting her be was the best advice. Seeing her come around to being a little love bug has been great. She follows me around and is under my chair sleeping now. I am so relieved and happy.
