Angelina Stripe is the only one of the dozens of cats we have managed that I have domesticated myself. I know someone commented on one of my previous posts that she could not have been feral if she came to me at 1 1/2 years, rubbing against my leg. That is possibly true - I understand the reasoning there. But I know most in our neighborhood do not want to be bothered with the colony let alone try to handle them at a young age. Stripe would not let me get anywhere near her when she was younger, especially not as a kitten when I attempted to handle her. And when she came to me at 1 1/2 yrs she had some rough edges - some wild behaviors like with claws and teeth. I managed to socialize away these behaviors.
So now that she is an indoor cat, she is lively and also gentle and sweet. She likes me to cuddle and pet her while she is sitting on top of a bookcase. I think she does that so she can be assured that the other kitties won't try to steal any of my attention.
I'm so touched by how she has truly and affectionately worked her way into the depths of my heart. She nuzzles, purrs, paws my face without claws, and wiggles so much that we enjoy such a love fest that neither one of us wants to stop.
