I have worked with many abused and neglected cats in my years with animal rescue. I can tell you NOT to take Luna's behavior personally. You asked this before, didn't you? It takes time for a cat to adjust to a new home, especially if she has been in many in her life and some not so good ones. If the foster had several cats, Luna had to vie for attention even if the foster was a good one. Luna has to decide for herself, with your love and understanding, of course, that this IS her forever home. She's been "fooled" before. And, not all cats are cuddle bugs, as we said previously. She may become one, but for now, give her time and as many playtimes as you can. Pawmail me if you want to "talk". I'd be happy to hear from you!
