Nugget has finally come around to loving the indoors, from being outside all her life and not having human contact, she has not even tried to go out and about. She is finally warm and loving the indoor life.. She even used the litter box right away with no problems.. she was very scared of her foster mama and would hide for the longest time until she finally found the trust and love. She still does not want to be held but I think with some patients and time she will one day want that special love and bonding feeling. She will let you go to her now and let you pet her, in fact she doesn't want you to stop..  sometimes she plays games with running back and forth to get those rubs, we just have to laugh because it's hilarious when she does it, and then you will get lots of purrs. She has finally figured out what toys are and if your not looking she will toss those little balls around and roll around in them.. it's pretty funny . She is friendly with other cats and kittens, she is unsure of dogs, pretty much just runs from them.. She has been around kids but not too sure of them, I think older kids would be fine, little ones, she will just run and hide. She loves to look out the window and watch the world go by.. She's actually pretty lazy and just loves to hang out..  She loves her food. I always keep her hard food out all day and give her the soft canned food in the morning and a can in the evening. She will come running when she hears that can opening. Been trying to get a good weight on her as she was very skinny coming into rescue.
Nugget has adjusted well with her foster family but it has taken time so to the new adopting family, PLEASE be patient and give her time. It will be another adjustment for her but with all your love and patients and time you will  have a very loving furbaby that is so deserving of the new found forever loving family.  She is camera shy(:
