Olive is an indoor/outdoor cat, preferring outdoors in good weather. I've had her since she was a young kitten and she's always had trust and anxiety issues. She will require freedom to do what she is comfortable with in a quiet home with no young children. It will take patience and understanding to win her over, and once you do, hearing her purr for you is so heartwarming. She is definately worth the time she needs to acclimate to a new home.
