Some of my cats are very friendly and outgoing. I have some cats that are very Leary of other people and like to be by themselves. Cats are very independent creatures and warm up to other people on their own terms and conditions.
I have cats that love to picked up by other people and they love to be patted and scratched under their chin. My Calico cat Cali loves all people and will not leave them alone until they pat her on the head and hold her for awhile. Russ is a light cream colored cat and he is very affectionate and loving. Faith is a gray and white tabby cat that loves to rub across your legs and for you to hold her while she purrs and purrs away.
Peter, Hilford, and Sherlock are very Leary of all people. If a cats parents are Leary of other people their kittens seem to inherit that trait. Lizzie and Onyx are the parents of Peter, Nicole and Conrad. Onyx and Lizzie are outdoor cats that have not been socialized with people so they tend to be very Leary of all people in general.
It is very important to interact with kittens when they are very young to get them socialized with humans early in their lives or they may always be a bit on he wild side. Play games with your kittens and hold them and pat them on their head and talk very softly and gently to them and they will turn out to be very loving and social as adult felines.
Cats tend to get very close to their owner and tend to be a bit Leary of people they don’t know. When I hand my cat to another person to hold and pat on the head I stay in an area where my cat can always see me and then she feels more at ease with the new person that is now holding her.
I hope your cat turns out to be a socialite.
