Magical loved other cats, but was terrified of people. There was a good chance she would be added to a feral colony, but I offered to try her at my house. She bonded quickly with Taz, another rescued kitty. Taz taught her how to play and accept human kindness. Magical is a different kitty now!
She would say that she is very lucky to have someone willing to take a chance on a hissing, growling, swatty cat.
