Teagan is very beautiful. She is a lovely colour and has big round eyes. She lived outside for the first 3 months of her life and has come along way but is still very nervous around humans. At night when I lie on the bed, she will come out and wait for me to give her treats, which she will take from my hand; however, she will not let me pet her yet. She still hisses at me on occasion if I move my hands too quickly and will bat my hand but not swipe...this is a huge improvement from how she was in the beginning. She blinks at me when I talk to her so has calmed considerably. Before she would just stare at me with her huge eyes, like I was going to eat her.
When I am not in the bedroom, Teagan likes to sit on the cat tree and watch the birds out the window but she retreats if I come in. She comes out in the living room more in the evening (as long as I don't move around too much) and climbs on the higher tree there. She came out once during the day and walked around but got scared and went back to the bedroom.
She loves my other kitties and plays with them. She watches them intently and pays attention to what they do and how they interact with me and my husband. I believe it is because of them that she is starting to trust people. She loves to play on her own and is starting to understand her name. When I call her at night for treats, she comes most of the time.
Teagan will do well with someone who is patient and wants to help socialize a cat -- someone who isn’t looking for a lap cat, as she is not there yet. I think she shows potential...it looks like she really wants to get there but is doing it in her own time. Teagan would do very well with a friendly cat to mentor her and show her that people are okay. She would not do well with small children, a noisy household or dogs.
