    Even non-feral cats can take a VERY long time to warm up, be friendly and integrate into a household. I inherited two Siamese from someone, and one of them spent his first month in my back closet hiding  behind my long skirts. He's all over me now. Sometimes it can take several months for even an ordinary cat to become relaxed and friendly. I have heard many tales of ferals becoming contented house pets with time.

    My only feral passed away in May at the age of 18, but he was not born to be feral. When he was a kitten, he sauntered into my friend's house, decided it was a better deal than continuing to live in the feral colony, and refused to leave. He was born to be a house cat.

      Prudence , nobody could touch her , she was bottled lightning . It took a long time but I got to the point where she would let me pet her , she once or twice came in my bedroom window .
