In the house, we have three cats. I have a favorite and that is the smallest one. I like this cat so much. I feed it always but it doesn't like me. I always stroke its skin/hairs and pet it to show that I care for it but it's scared at me, it hides away from me always. How can I get it like me?

I agree. I feel she will tempt the kitty with food/treats and play with it with something it finds interesting. Soon the kitty will associate something good... food.. with her.

Hello butterscotch and welcome to myLot. Cats are very independent and have a mind of their own. They can be like people. Not every one is going to like you even if you love them. Not all cats are lovers of being held and cuddled. My daughter had a cat that would only let her husband hold her and then foe a short time. When she wanted down she would give him nip on the neck and if he didn't put her down right way she gave him a harder nip. The cats we have don't want to be held and cuddled. Maybe the best thing to do is let it alone and possibly she will come around on her own.

I think this is actually the best advice you have received--some cats, especially females, may be standoff-ish and not like to be cuddled. And some cats don't like people who are too "clingy"--the more you try and get her to like you, the more she may pull away! I would suggest giving her lots of space--be friendly and caring, and always be the one to feed her, but otherwise give her some space. If she doesn't feel like she's being smothered, she may warm up to you. Remember--the cat picks the human, not the other way around!

Something else you might try is giving your kitty some special treats like hair ball treatment or other treats..

Hi Butterscotsh, Well I have three cats the one cat I have named Ciarra was so scared of me and my husband all the time when we brought her home. It takes a little time for cats to warm up to people. I know it took about a year for my cat to finally let my husband pet her. Just keep calling her over to you and petting her. Try giving her some treats and playing with her. That should let her warm up to you and like you even more. I don't think that she don't like you it's probably that she's just nervous and not sure of things yet. Good luck and I hope this works.

That is how snow ball is but now she will let sharon and kay pet her She runs from me left and right. I feed her and try to be near her. give it time she will get there. Cats don't trust that easily.

Awww... the kitty is just timid. I think you need to tempt the kitty with some treats. Then the kitty will associate you will good things. Also you can wad up some paper into a small ball and play with the kitting.. soon the kitty will be batting the ball of paper around.. you might also try a rod with a feather on it.. you can buy them at pet stores.
