Stormy wanted absolutely nothing to do with me. She was interested in one thing, and one thing only: hiding. All the treats in the world couldn’t coax her near me. I don’t think I even got to brush against her fur! But even so, we got some beautiful portraits of this sweetheart. We just needed to stay calm and persistent.
Stormy has an amazing story. She has been through a lot in her short life, with illness, a leg injury, and major surgery to correct a life-threatening defect with the placement of her major organs. I’d say she has every right to be wary of newcomers. The world is lucky to have this beautiful cat in it!
