Update: Lady J has been in Foster care since Sunday and her foster reports that she's opening up nicely. He's now hanging out on the couch, purring when petted and walking around with a nice high tail indicating that she's relaxing and having a good time. She's living with a dog and some other cats and is adjusting nicely. She will need a quiet home, but should make someone a very loving pet. No answer to the question about being good with kids only because of her needs for a quiet home. Homes with younger children are typically busy homes and Lady J would likely hide all the time.
Update 2: She was a recent event and was being a total lovebug. She still wanted to run and hide outside the display crate we had her in, but inside where she was safe she was all about the attention.
