Mia has been here since she was a wee little thing that we found in the shed, her and Larry were only about 6 weeks old. There is no reason for her to be feral-ish, she will come in bed in the middle of the night to lick our noses and then take off.
To get her into the vet for her spay a few years ago we had to trap her in the spare room ( at the other house) with a dog crate and take her in thatway.
She will humor us from time to time and come into the living room to have a discussion about something by sitting in the middle of the floor and talk away until either of us make a move of any kind.
I dont mind that she is shy and withdrawn like she is. She never really liked being fussed over one bit even as a kitten.
