I have seen some cats that really prefer being indoors and being close to 1-2 person only. I think that's fine as long as the cat eats, naps, and is healthy.

I am not really familiar with cats, I've never owned one.

Just give her time...Some never change..We have one who showed up as a stray about 7 years ago..Took up with us and stayed.Follows my hubby around like a dog..Knows me as the snack lady...lol..But he sits on hubby..Will stay close even if someone is down...Men no problem with but women,runs and hides..Cats are some mysterious creatures...

Like others said give her time. My latest rescue cat has been in my house for 2 weeks and in the last few days has started to be “one of the gang”.  I rescued a cat a few years ago and she spent the first month hiding under a bed. Eventually she came out and became a love bug

Hi, I have a cat too. She loves me and I feed her all the time. She is indoor. She runs from my father but looks like she lays it as a game.My concern is if she goes outside she is vulnerable to cars and even coyotes. we have those in MA. I think she just needs to be taught. I would not get rid of her.

I have a cat and when I try to take him outside, he tries to get out my arms. He does go outside on my patio and lays down but I'm trying to get him to go on walks. Walking a cat sounds impossible but it's possible. I've seen people walking their cats on TV.

We have 2 strays that showed up..One about 7 years ago..He follows my husband around like a dog..Will sit on hubby but not me and terrified of everyone else..He will rub around my leg when I give him a snack..And our other stray showed up as a 6 week old kitten..She will let me for a minute..But both of them are inside/outside cats..Max the older one will run and hide if a female comes in the house or anywhere near him..Terrified of women..Smokey she is the hunter..Never know what she is bringing in the yard..And she still doesnt like to be held..Cats like dogs pick someone to be their master..Your cat has taken up with you..Cats have some weird ways...lol..But I would give her a chance..She feels comfortable with you..Good luck

Wow, that must be hard on you. I have seen ads recently on cat food targeted at indoor cats. But that's just from a nutritional aspect, not behavioral, as you noted below.
